[Histonet] Negative response from the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology

From:"George Cole"


Most of you have noticed my offer of muscle and nerve packets offered AT NO CHARGE to all interested histotechs. It has been showing up on the Histonet since July  Well, I was hoping to add similar offers to neuropathologists by way of the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology.  I got a most negative response from the Editor in Chief of that journal,  Michael Noel Hart, who, apparently without reading the letter I sent or the packet material, said “I think you just want free advertisement for your product”  I hit the ceiling and wrote a reply from there, but I haven’t come in for a landing yet.  Histotechs, you have given a warm reception  to those packets---I’ve sent you 87 packets so far to 33 states and 14 countries outside the US at NO CHARGE.  It seemed logical to include neuropathologists in the offer, because decisions were made in my lab by my very great boss, Dr. Anthony D’Agostino, neuropathologist, and I assumed things were much the same in all your labs.  The packet was, again, offered AT NO CHARGE to the good doctors. May I assume that the neuropathologists in your lab have heard about the better methods.  If it would do any good, I would be happy to send you histotechs copies, as needed, for the neuropathologists involved in your muscle and nerve procedures.  They will surely be involved in any decisions about USING the methods contained in the packets. And folks, NOT using the methods can only lead to spurious No Pathological Diagnoses in some percentage of your muscle and nerve cases.  This is not a matter of taste---it’s a matter of necessity----searching, thoroughly, those tissues sent for histochemistry, which is NOT done by the “pip-of-muscle-on-a-cork” method in almost universal use. I know folks take some getting used to free offers---it seems almost weird, I guess to  Dr. Hart---no pumping folks for their cash---so he just jumped at conclusions and landed on me.

Well, I became addicted to the greater effort to search those tissues----I actually spent 2.5 years worth of unpaid overtime at Good Sam Hospital here, and left behind 39 weeks of unused vacation time in developing and doing those procedures contained in the packets. I hardly believe I actually did that----but I did----I was thinking of getting fitted for a plastic electric halo at the time, but my head started swelling every time I was fitted, so I just winged it,  bare headed.  You know my computer’s correction function keeps changing histonet to hemstitch----well whenever I started writing anyone about my goody goody doings, that corrector kept changing the phrase “noble efforts  to the “dojngs of a jerk!!”.  Is there anybody out there who knows how to turn the Truth off on this danged HP keyboard?

Anyway, if there is one or more neuropathologists involved in deciding what methods to use in your muscle and nerve lab, I will be very happy to send any packets needed for them to see.

Incidently, a product of my green, green computer skills----when I made the first video DVD, I figured, as it would hold 80  minutes of sound, it might hold 40 minutes of sight AND sound>  A sure enough., there was just a little clear band at the center of the CD, showing, I thought, that what I put on it just barely fit. So there I went sending all of you three DVD’s to contain the video material.  Well, somehow, I fouled up, recently, making a set of DVD’;s to send and the whole video landed on ONE CD!  I looked at it, and the circle in the center of the CD was about 2/3’s if the way to the edge.  The circle I had seen in the center of the CD was the RECORDED area. Now that just leaves leventy seven billion things I don‘t know about computers!  So, if any of you have tromped upon any of the CD’s I sent you with your spiky boots, I will send you one CD with the whole shebang on one CD.  I know that pure thought transfer may be coming up, replacing keyboards and common computers ---but I don’t really think I’ll get one----I don’t want anybody reading that stuff!!      .
