Hillary Clinton's aides put a lot of thought and care into selecting the location for her victory celebration. Columbus' Athenaeum is a proud building with a mighty coffered ceiling. As befits its victory, the Clinton party is being held in the Olympian Ballroom…

German Doctors Confessed to Medical Malpractice

Mistakes ~ NOT "GODS IN WHITE"

Surgical scissors left in stomachs, operations on the wrong knee, prescriptions of uppers instead of downers -- medical error is not just the stuff of fiction. Now a group of German doctors has decided to break a taboo and talk openly about their slip-ups.


The myth of the doctor who will make everything better is not just popular with patients but also useful for doctors. Now, for the first time, a group of German doctors wants to dispel it.
