No one has written to us yet, however, to point out a grammatical error that appeared in “Doctors on the ropes” by Richard Hayward (31 March, p 805). We inadvertently dropped an unattached participle (also known as a dangling modifier) on to the page, and to make more of an impact we did this twice—in large blue type as well as in the final sentence. “By getting angry on behalf of our patients, our status as a profession is assured” should have been changed to: “By getting angry on behalf of our patients, we can assure the status of our profession.”
