JAMA's anatomically correct bat

JAMA cover - batty!

I am so fortunate to have lots of cousins who are willing to humor me with letters. This lovely cover of the Oct. 28 Journal of the American Medical Association was sent to me by my original letter-writing cousin - she's now a doctor (hence the JAMA subscription), but we used to write letters to each other when we were but wee lassies living in different towns in our childhood. I always get a kick out of seeing her handwriting on an envelope.

She said she saw this cover with the bat and just had to send it to me, and noted the anatomically correct portrayal of Mr. Bat.

  3. Do you think that Count Dracula, after his transformation into a bat, ever felt inadequate?
