        Subject: an apology

In my note on Don WATERS' essay I managed to get his surname right only 
once, in every other instance inserting a spurious L before the T. Apart 
from accepting my apologies for an error that sneaked by what I thought was a 
careful proofreading, I ask only that you refrain from medicalizing it :-). I 
wonder: do we refer any longer to "absent minded" professors? And has 
anyone written about the phenomenon of medicalizing either behaviours or 
conditions that are not reasonably within the domain of medical diagnosis?
