To the Editor: I am critical of the article by Tattersall and Kerridge.1 In my opinion, the article comprises a series of pompous announcements from an ivory tower, which hint without actually saying that doctors who attend educational symposia organised by pharmaceutical companies, and who subsequently order the product, are acting improperly. As I see them, the facts are quite otherwise.
