Followup on yesterday's rant

One of my favorite fellow surgeon-bloggers, Dr. Bard-Parker, has posted his own comment on the "surgeon as technician" issue. He boiled it down better than I could (I've never been known for my lack of verbosity in writing, unfortunately):
So I am technical, but not a technician.
Damn. I wish I had thought of that one.

If you haven't checked A Chance to Cut is a Chance to Cure lately, you should. His Tales from the Trauma Service series is always a good read. (It also reminds me why I got out of doing trauma surgery six years ago, but I'm glad someone loves that sort of surgery.)

I also note that not everyone was with me on this. If everyone always agreed with me, blogging would get mighty boring mighty fast.
