I was reading my journals the other day and I came across an article that caught my attention, mostly because it is a very different type of article than the usual I find in pediatric journals.  I really have no idea why this article was in a pediatric journal, but it was and it immediately caught my attention.  Especially, in light of a recent murder of Boston doctor that was allegedly killed by the son of a patient.
