Abstract

Abstract Medical writing*,†,g-d is growing so documented1 and tedious2-8 that we9 wonder10-12 if a writer13 might not defeat his purpose as an author14 by scaring off his readers.‡ It is commendable § for the journalist to comfort15-17 his public by assuring it ‡ that he has actually read the references himself.1, 12,13 However, a certain vertigo3a,b,g must be induced in the cerebrums of innocent ∥ subscribers by the whirring visions of neverending ¶ little figures looking like flyspecks18-27 on his eyeglasses.# May we suggest that less of these references would greatly facilitate the reading process. The defenseless reader who, after all, only wants to learn what the heck is in the article should find this unadorned type of writing much more relaxing. Ah, yes, very relaxing. Yas, quite relaxing. So-o-o-o-o-o Relax-z-z-z-z-z. REFERENCES References 1. An ungrammatical term by which the author means to convey writing confined to subjects dealing with medicine.
