Medical news

Here is an interesting article from the New York Times, about utilizing circumcision as a means of reducing the spread of HIV in African nations.

Even more interesting than the article, though, is the fact that the head of the WHO department recommending this public health intervention is named Dr. De Cock.

Of course, one of the PGY2 URO residents at BJH is named "Cox"...and another is named "Wang"... It's some sort of penile predestination by moniker.

Although I guess that rule doesn't always hold true. Otherwise, one of your BJH PGY2 NSG compatriots should have ended up in URO, given that his surname can--I've been told--be used as an off-color phallic reference. (One reason he quickly ruled out naming his son "Harry.")

Phoenix: Thanks for the greetings!

Anon PGY2's wife: Better yet, one of the urologists at DePaul Hosp is named Richard Lovinggood. Yes, Dick Lovinggood is his name. And he goes by Dick.

From Anon PGY2's Wife:

Wow. That name probably creates a lot of pressure for him in his personal life. But it's got an audacious promise of porn-star greatest to it that just can't be denied.
