One thought on “About Brad

  1. Dear sir:
    WOW! Just read CRAZY ENOUGH TO CARE in this spring’s THE AMERICAN SCHOLAR. Fine writing and superlative treatment of a difficult topic. I spent my early years living near Byberry State Hospital in Philadelphia, a stark contrast to the Friends Hospital of the same City of Brotherly Love. As you may see from my domain and website I have proposed a re-visioning of the community healthcare experience. I would be grateful if you could forward the bibliography you generated of sources and resources as well as your favorite giants on whose shoulders you stood to give us this exemplary perspective. I would also like your permission to use your work and article by reference and acclamation in my own bibliography as I present my views at this year’s WORLD FUTURE SOCIETY in Toronto, Canada July 29,2012. Again I appreciate and acknowledge your scholarship, erudition and article—Kudos and THANK YOU.
