Collecting Duct

So, I go to New York City for a few days, and what do I miss? The biggest thing to hit mediblogs since the MMR / autism retraction. I'm referring to Trent McBride's new groundbreaking series in the Proximal Tubule on paternalism in medicine. The first section, on the history and excesses of prescription regulations, came out this week. It's provocative and well researched, and everyone's abuzz. Trent's doing a good job rounding up the commentary on his site.

Since I'm late anyway, I'm going to sit this one out and and jump in on an upcoming installment... I'm told there's lots more to come, and if it's as interesting as the "Gatekeepers" piece, we'll have plenty to think about.
