TO THE EDITOR:
I would like to comment on the sports analogy in Nash and Nash's editorial . In an earlier era it was believed, naively even then, that “… the point of fielding a team is to win games” instead of focusing on money. That, to be polite, does not compute today. When sports figures command mega-buck salaries and, via free agency, chase “the green,” and when owners move franchises for even better deals, the concept of winning is only a means to an end. That era in medicine was also “the days of the Giants.”
