Recently, you wrote an editorial in which you stated that circumcision is child abuse.  I know of two instances where a child was not circumcised as a baby but had to be later in life because of urinary problems.  One was a buddy when we were in the 6th grade.  He went through extreme misery, especially when he had to urinate.   We all felt quite sorry for him.

The other was a friend who, as an adult, had to be circumcised.  He was off work for five weeks because of the misery and it put him for behind financially.

I don't know where you got your medical degree, but you might consider giving it back to the institution.  Someone must have given you an enema and your brains leaked out.
