Feel on the verge of going mad -- then it's time to punch the clock

Meet Publishers Weekly's 6 Authors Who Never Quit Their Day Jobs, fully half of whom are or were in medical fields (counting psychologist Tomas Transtromer). Next time I can't get a doctor's appointment because the office is only open from 10:30 to 11:45 and 2:30 to 4, I'll know what the score is. In a larger philosophical sense, though, has this economy not made Melvilles of us all?
