 I find it an ironic and even embarrassing fact that my prior article in this Journal about my planned retirement in June, 2011, was mailed out on the very same day on which, instead, I abruptly announced my permanent retirement on January 1st, 2011. I retired five months earlier than my patients and I had expected, and much earlier if you count the many prior absences that occurred in the Fall of 2010.
