AMA redux

A few weeks ago I took a swipe at the AMA here, and was debated. The counter arguments didn’t change my mind, but they did help me see the other side.

I tried to explain my aversion to the AMA as being related to their inexplicable desire to take a side on everything (usually the side I disagree with). Today I found a much more succinct way to describe it (excerpted from this), about the demise of another professional organization:

Organizations that trivialize and politicize themselves tend to lose members.

I’m not trying to reignite the debate, just found the expression I was looking for earlier.

Oh, and this is my 401st post. Wow. I used to tell Rick I’d get a blog of my own, when I had something to say. Still nothing to say, but I have a blog!
