I have SO MANY stories about all the parasite players!!!!!!!! Once I was on the phone to this alleged Hookworm guy, Hendrix, at Auburn University. He taught me some helpful things about what to look for in microscopy. So I started to ask him about STAINS. I wondered why at one time, some parasitologists had used Papinacolau [sp?] stain. He said, "Parasitologists don't normally use stain." So here I am, our lives destroyed by a clear parasite because the hubris of these guys.... I said, "Maybe you should." Although we talked for another, um, 10 seconds, it was clear that questioning Parasitological Dogma was NOT OKAY.
