Dear AOA and Old Dead Osteopaths, We, in the 21st century attending osteopathic schools, want to thank you for having it made it possible for us to become physicians without having to travel to the Caribbean or abroad. We find your manual techniques intriguing, often amusing, sometimes quite relaxing, and a perfect opportunity to feel up our classmates for more than two years. That said, there is one technique over which we find it impossible to suspend disbelief for the minimum amount of time required for it to be taught to us and for us to practice it. We are speaking of course of Cranial. This, to us, is the equivalent of the 19th century leeching and use of castor oil. Moreover, without any proof (which is the osteopathic way in any case), we find Dr. (I use the title w/ not a little sense of irony) Sutherland to be a cult leader and quack of the highest order. If tarring and feathering had still been permitted in the 1930's and 40's, Dr. Sutherland was fully deserving of this practice. Yours Truly, The Class of 2009, 10, 11, 12........ PS. Cranial Bones will move when pigs fly.
