A tip for Carl Elliott - don't let your little brother create your book website! LOL

Carl Elliott's new book, White Coat, Black Hat, is great. Apparently he asked his younger brother to set up a website, which is resentfully, profanely, hysterically funny:

For example, his list of articles is introduced by:

More sermonizing from Dr. Pious Dickhead. Newsflash: Carl doesn't like it when other people make money. Evil Medicine! WalkerPercy WalkerPercy! There, we're done - now you've read them all. Here they are anyway.

Yes, his brother is clearly a talented writer and bioethicist. In fact, many of us in the community have secretly wondered how much of the book is actually Carl's, and how much of it was simply fed to him in his brother's emails.

Britt, is this you? I'm going to get you for this, you bastard.

It's entirely typical of Carl to think that the only person voicing these concerns would be his brother. We bioethicists have long suspected that he'd plagiarized his brother's emails. As a Health Care Professional, I am more than capable of recognizing this kind of narcissism in patients - especially in someone who grew as up his parents' favorite child, despite showing inferior athletic and musical abilities.
