To the Editor:
The article about how top medical students are going into the field of dermatology is probably the best argument I have heard so far that the free marketplace does not work when it comes to the field of medicine. It is absurd to see the best and the brightest going into the field of dermatology.
This is further proof that the American medical system is gravely ill and needs major lifesaving surgery. If that does not happen, I hope we can at least take solace in the fact that the rich will look good when they die.
