The Uncommon Thread is a collection of the original un-condensed versions of the essays written by Dr. Anderson over the past five years in the JOURNAL of the Mississippi State Medical Association. They represent a humorous closing piece for each months issue. They often have nothing to do with medicine and everything to do with living life itself. They have no thematic connection and are, it seems, totally unrelated, until you read them, and then the thread that binds them, the same that binds each of us to another, the thread of human experience, becomes evident.
If you start, you're hooked. They're like peanuts or potato chips, kind of hard to walk away after just one.
