1.  Musings on our meetings: MLA conventions, 'ninety-eight to date. 
Annual meetings of the Medical Library Association have been a part of the culture of medical librarians in North America since 1898. With only four exceptions (one during WWI and three during WWII) medical librarians have met annually for nearly 100 years to conduct their business, share ideas, present papers, attend continuing education courses, view exhibits, and have fun. Based on the writer's research and personal experience, his reflections contain a summary of the history and development of these meetings since the first one in Philadelphia in 1898, an assessment of their content and value, and recommendations.

3.  Musings on genome medicine: abuse of genetic tests 
Genome Medicine  2009;1(2):18.
The wide general publication of a putative genetic test for athletic supremacy is clearly an abuse of genetics and reveals an undercurrent of hucksterism in biomedical science.

6.  Musings on genome medicine: gene therapy 
Genome Medicine  2009;1(4):38.
Though the field has moved with glacial speed, gene therapies have been carried out successfully in patients with bone marrow disorders including immune deficiencies. The field may be poised to move forward more rapidly, but many barriers have yet to be surmounted.

7.  Musings on genome medicine: cancer genetics and the promise of effective treatment 
Genome Medicine  2009;1(5):49.
Cancer is the most common acquired genetic disease. Great progress has been made in documenting the genetic abnormalities that cause the disease, and in the future each tumor will be subjected to genetic analysis and the appropriate combination of drugs selected. Although there are serious technological and cost hurdles to surmount and resistance and continued mutation will be a constant problem, the way is clear to rational therapy.

8.  Musings on genome medicine: cholesterol and coronary artery disease 
Genome Medicine  2009;1(6):60.
Cholesterol levels and not inflammatory markers are the major variables that pose a risk of coronary artery disease. Diabetes greatly increases the risk at any cholesterol level. Coronary artery disease and cancer are linked by a common protein - an apoptotic protein that also functions as a regulator of insulin secretion.
