Blog name revealed (mini history lesson)

I know you've been asking, it's been the talk of the town!  Where on earth does the name come from?????

Viola, here is the source:
Robert Hutchison, in an address to the British Medical Association in 1930, once said "Vegetarianism is harmless enough though it is apt to fill a [hu]man with wind and self-righteousness."

And there you have it!

Who is Robert Hutchison?  He was the president of the British Pediatric Association back in 1930 (1).  He was "a general physician with a special interest in nutrition and in children."(2)  And apparently his "wisdom and wit educated and amused successive generations of students and doctors."(2)  I guess it's appropriate that I use his quote as a springboard as I hope to educated and amuse my contemporaries.

Meet Sir Robert
