To the Editor.
—I am sure there are a lot of my colleagues who may be shocked by the article entitled "It's Over, Debbie,"1 but it touches on one of the central reasons I became a physician. I applaud the courage of the author to write about his humaneness, and I applaud JAMA's courage in publishing it.
