ezs note:  Um, okay, before you go on a righteous spiel, (understandably so) hear me out.  Meghan Murphy is undoubtedly half-baked and utterly wrong.  She also has the right to free speech.    No, I don't plan on going to Ms. Murphy's blog. However, her voice deserves to be heard, no matter how wrongheaded I believe it to be.  The AMA, APA, and WHO, to name but a few, are on my side, so I feel very comfortable making my case.  If you are creating a blog, please speak up.  Our voices will soon drown out hers - if we take the noble path.
