Nothing gladdens an editor's heart more than hearing from supportive readers like Dr Blaschke.Our goal indeed is to publish a contribution to A Piece of My Mind each and every week. Occasionally, however, certain dedicated "theme" or special issues are such that the column's absence is deliberate, eg, the Medical Education or CONTEMPO issues. Or, an appropriate essay simply may not have been submitted or solicited.The human side of medicine—exemplified in A Piece of My Mind—constitutes its art.
