To the Editor.—
As a nonsmoker and as a psychiatrist, I would like to make one point in reaction to Dr. Szasz (229:1326, 1974).Speaking of "medical metaphors," one might ask in this instance whether Dr. Szasz, disturbed by clouds of tobacco smoke at a meeting, was acting in an "antisocial" manner by attending and participating in a symposium when he was "coming down with the flu" and thus exposing those with "incomprehensible jargon" and "fakery and foolishness" to his virus.
