To the Editor: I
wholeheartedly support Dr Anderson's decision to order the removal of
Dr Lundberg as editor of JAMA.1 It's about time
that someone within the ivory-tower world of the AMA bureaucrats had
the courage to take a stand against the constant politicizing of the
medical profession, especially toward the left. All of my colleagues
with whom I have spoken also feel that the ouster was justified. Most
of the support of Lundberg seems to come from those in academe and
among the politically attuned and not from us in direct patient care.
