True story: someone asked me several months ago if I had a lot of reporters at places like the Times emailing me quietly with attaboys or tips. The answer was and remains no. Whether that’s ignorance, fear, ideology, or simple competitiveness, I do not know. But they appear to hate me every bit as much as they say they do.
But doctors, scientists, nurses, and pharma and hospital employees and managers - the folks who actually know what’s happening - yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
Anyway, thank you for responding - I don’t want to waste anyone’s time - no need to email if you have not already. Hopefully you’ll see soon enough why I was asking.
