Transgender Slap, Rush and Hush, Rubac's Cube

I really enjoyed your article, especially in light of my recent experience at M.D. Anderson. Since I work at UTMB, my cancer treatment has been more peer-to-peer than God-to-supplicant.

It was as if Anderson expected patients to be utterly uninformed idiots. When I told my medical oncologist that I didn't want to take tamoxifen because there was no study to prove its effectiveness on my type of breast cancer, plus I didn't want to begin menopause at age 37, he seemed startled. He looked down at my chart and said he'd discuss it with his "group." I've never heard a word from him.

Not to mention the snotty nurse practitioner who snapped at me, "Who told you you were high risk" for a recurrence? She quieted down when I responded, "My surgeon, my radiation oncologist, my family history, the statistics" Ye gods.

Obscene Calls

Public exposure: Why do people care if the person at the next table is on a cell phone ["Hell Phone," by George Alexander, November 16]? It's okay to have a conversation at your table, have a screaming kid and an obnoxious drunk, but not a call on a cell phone? This makes no sense to me.

Didn't some restaurants of yesteryear make phones available at your table if you needed one? Why don't people just mind their own business? When you go out in public, you are exposed to all kinds of things that you don't agree with, but you don't make policies because they aren't what you believe in.
