Twenty-one years ago in this journal I wrote an article entitled, “Random Thoughts.”1 At that time I had practiced pediatrics for 24 years and shared some of my random personal thoughts concerning pediatricians and the practice of pediatrics.
I have now practiced pediatrics for 45 years, and I thought it would be interesting, at least to me, to re-evaluate what I said then and to comment on today's pediatric scene as viewed from a well-seasoned, and, I hope, not overripe, pediatrician and clinical geneticist.
