Letter to the Editor
Dr. Edwin Leap's column was the most profound article I've read in years. (“The Psychotic, Frantic, Tragic Republic of Emergistan,” EMN 2012;34:13; http://bit.ly/Emergistan.)
It's 5 a.m., I'm jetlagged from a trip and recovering from the flu, and my shift is in three hours. This article will give me the strength to go back into battle after a blissful two-week vacation. I can now forward an article to my family that reflects what I've been trying to explain them for years.
