To the Editor:—
Perhaps, for the record, it would be wise for you to publish a correction to the Dec. 5 issue. In my letter on "Drug Names" I was given an M.D. degree. I do not have a doctorate in medicine. Your original letter included no degree. I am sure that the manuscript editor was sufficiently aware of your interest in medicine over the years that she thought it would be proper to so honor you. I might well have had the same inclination, if this had been my responsibility.—Ed.
