Gunfight at the OK Corral– Pistols at dawn! IDSA President takes aim at Stricker and Johnson article on flawed Lyme guidelines.
You need to take a look at the “pistols at dawn” action at the OK Corral. The article by Dr. Stricker and me on the IDSA guidelines, antitrust law, and Lyme disease has drawn the heat of Dr. Gershon, President of IDSA. This type of exchange is good. It highlights issues. It clears the air. Remember a duel is not a brawl. It is a controlled battle between gentlemen of honor with a certain level of dignity expected of all participants. I don’t know, it still makes me think that I ought to put on a combat helmet before putting put pen to paper.
Take a look at the action and follow the thread, which threatens to be lively and play out like Quick Draw McGraw with alot of back and forth. Here is Dr. Gershon’s piece.
