One that won't make me nervous

I used to read Andrew Sullivan's blog a lot in grad school. He's bounced around several times over the years -- both on the web and on major issues -- but I rediscovered him this primary season. I was drawn to his optimism and enthusiasm, even as some of his opinions are difficult to defend.

Anyway, he was recently musing about the latest ketamine-for-depression research, and wondering if this notorious drug could someday have a clinical use.

I wrote in to tell him I use it (clinically) quite often -- not for depression but for procedural sedation.

To my surprise, he printed the letter. And now I wish I had included more from my informed consent spiel, mentioned the sialorrhea, and maybe talked about that one time I pushed it too fast...
