Dr. Richmond,

I read your critique of Kim's article and I must admit that I was 
disappointed in your comments.  The article may not have answered all of the 
questions from your point of interest, but I suspect that it was targeted at 
a different audience.  The HistoLogic publication is an excellent forum for 
technical people to communicate with one another, sharing techniques and 
experiences.  It has been well received in the histology community for many 
years because the articles are informative and easy to understand.   

It is very difficult to get people in the field to feel confident enough to 
submit articles for publication and many individuals feel a little safer 
starting out in this arena.  I fear that after reading your sharp critique 
there will be a number of individuals who will reconsider their desire to 
publish, and that would be a terrible waste of potential talent.  

I do not believe that there is an "impasse" or a "failure to communicate" 
between the pathologists and the technologists.  The pathologists that I 
worked for always encouraged me to do things that I hadn't tried before, and 
they helped me learn without being critical or negative.  The "impasse" never 
existed in that environment.
