RE: Richard Willner
If you are ever unfortunate enough to be exposed to a peer review
situation, you will thank God every day for the work and accomplishments
of Richard Willner.
I don't know how he did it. He has almost single handedly changed the
horizon of peer review in this Country, including for DO's MD's and
I would assume that most of you would have thought this impossible. I
would have too. He's not an MD or a lawyer.
But he did it!
He is the personification of how one person can make a difference. I liken

And she did it with legislators who are and were a bunch of drunks.
So to all of you here who let your lives be ruled by uncontrollable
cynicism and lethargy, BEWARE.
You can be dead wrong. And I have just proved it.
