NYTimes.com recently featured a piece on retired orthopedic surgeon Anthony Walter. My favorite line from "At Houston Surgeon’s Home, an Ode to His Wife and to God":
He said their reaction was understandable, given that the museum’s collection includes abstract art, which he disdains. “I am a huge threat because what I have done renders everything they have junk,” he said beneath the glinting chandeliers in his great hall. “I hope that doesn’t sound arrogant but the reaction of people who come in here tells me the power of it.”
Yes, of course. A huge threat. lol. No wonder some people subscribe to a certain stereotype of orthopedic surgeons! Reminds me of that joke about Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle Software: what's the difference between Larry Ellison and God?
God doesn't think he's Larry Ellison!
