In Reply.  —I agree with Dr Taylor that all of us decry the excessive time between the submission and publication of a scientific article. However, judging from the comments received, Dr Goldblatt's article was, with one exception, universally popular. Theodore Bernstein, a former member of the editorial staff of the New York Times, pointed out in his book The Careful Writer that, "curiously enough... errors in agreement between subject and verb are the most common ones that writers make." The manuscripts we receive are no exception.As to the relegation of Dr Taylor's letter, I disagree. The LETTERS TO THE EDITOR section is the most lively and provocative, and I thank you for making it so.
