Lit Fest delves into what we fear, how we relate in extremis

Conjure1 Conjuring up Good Vibes

When I was a kid, a cousin of mine introduced me to worry dolls. Hand-crafted dolls traditionally made in Guatemala, they are usually only about an inch tall. But these colorful miniatures aren’t toys. Their purpose is to take your worries away, hence the name.

For a time, we thought they were the coolest things ever. We would tell them our worries (or wishes) and put them under our pillows when we went to bed. But...

2015.06.30 reader hospital mpw-56037-2 They Don’t Teach These in Medical School

The Journal of Patient Safety puts the number of people killed in American hospitals by preventable medical errors at 440,000 yearly. The complete number is much higher, but even using the 440K figure, that’s the equivalent of 60 Jumbo Jet crashes every month killing all on board. How long would we let an industry operate that crashed two Jumbo Jets full of people every day? Would you willingly get on a Jumbo Jet...
