A Piece of My Mind: My Body, Your Crime—Muninder K. Dhaliwal

If I had the chance to read my medical note before entering medical school, I would have been saddened: I would have believed it made the world seem like a dangerous and indifferent place. However, I am learning that there is beauty behind this seemingly mundane task I will be asked to do day in and day out as a physician. What seem like cold, sterile, cautiously constructed sentences are actually thoughtfully and purposely created to produce a powerful legal document that could help survivors of horrific crimes like me make people like you accountable for your brutal acts. http://ja.ma/1VlkH4a

The Rational Clinical Examination: Does This Man With Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Have Bladder Outlet Obstruction?

JAMA Revisited, 1966. Narration: Timelessness

It is immediately obvious that newspapers are designed not so much for the dissemination of news as for a repository for items with a quality of timelessness which make them eminently suitable for deferred reading. Under this plan there is always a backlog of unread New York Times which should enable any mature reader to survive a newspaper strike. http://ja.ma/1VlkGgJ
