I have enjoyed Dr. Miller's cartoons and writings over the years. In the October issue, he describes the good ol' days of
veterinary practice ("Mind Over Miller: Finding a good home for a discarded animal"). I have had several of the same types
of experiences over my 38-year career. Unfortunately in today's times, it seems that most veterinarians do not have the time
for such things. But these are the things that make veterinary medicine unique. These are the moments I have cherished throughout
I also just read with delight Dr. Miller's perspective in the November issue on foie gras ("Mind Over Miller: Foie gross!").
I, like him, have never understood our leadership position on this matter. To me, it is simple! If this process causes disease
to the animal, we as veterinarians should oppose it! Well done, Dr. Miller.

Thanks for Dr. Miller's comments on foie gras. It is a horrible process that I can't believe the AVMA won't take a stance
on. In this area, we as veterinarians are pathetic. Congratulations, Dr. Miller.
