This column has previously been devoted to the vexing problem of questionably qualified experts. I expounded in a witty and appealing fashion about medical specialists who might cross the borders of their expertise, for instance, having an anesthesiologist give a good-faith opinion about podiatry, or a dentist assess the standard of care owed by a neurosurgeon. I wish to discuss another type of distressingly unqualified experts. A recent conversation with one such individual caused me to break out of my usual pattern of dealing with frustration by invading the office candy bowls and acquiring anything that vaguely resembled chocolate. I was in such need of nutritional narcosis by the time I finished the call that I headed straight for the mashed potatoes.
