Phds: Knowledge isn't yet power.

It seems to very often be true that the people who know the most about the newest findings in a field are the newest and brightest graduates from the best schools, in graduate school and in medicine. Older scientists/doctors tend to specialize, and then even within that specialization tend to lag behind as the context of other discoveries impact what it is they are specialized in. -- Written in an email to my Mom about her granddaughter, the doctor. 2012 October 19.
