We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
One caveat: said highly qualified doctor from India might well have a seriously different risk assessment process than his patents (or parents/children of patients) have. This came up in Canada when a doctor of Indian origin was accused (and, as I recall, convicted) of malpractice with respect of operations on seriously ill young children and babies (think was in Winnipeg). From what I recall, said doctor operated on several seriously ill infants, none of whom survived. It became a question of "he said, she said", but the message I got out of it was that the doctor was saying "last possible hope, may not make it" while the parents were hearing "this will save your child". Very sad all around.
When writing this, am reminded of the memoirs of the first doctors to do open heart surgery on a child. All did not go well but - in the end - they were successful. Only after the surgery was finished were the surgeons advised by the family doctor - who had been an observed - that, that the wee one died during surgery, he was instructed to tell the surgeons to complete the operation so that the lessons learned would benefit others. We need more parents like those these days.
