One of the first things Wayne Secord, the new Editor of LSHSS, asked me when we talked a few months ago was whether I would be interested in writing a column for the journal. The thought of being the Mike Royko of LSHSS had a certain appeal. I would have carte blanche to write about whatever I wanted to: politics, social issues, political correctness, sports, music, even speech-language pathology and audiology. But, no, this is a trap, I thought next. Professional suicide. The peer-review process ensures that no one says anything outrageous. Only close friends and students have been privy to all of the illogical, inaccurate, or inane things I’ve thought or said over the years. Although a few of these thoughts occasionally manage to slip through and get printed, the vast majority never get written or are wiped out by a benign delete key. Does anyone tell Royko when he writes a bad column? Only after the column has been printed in 300 newspapers. Who will keep me from embarrassing myself and losing all the credibility I worked so hard to achieve over the last 12 years? This is Wayne’s job, right?
