Marginalia, no.322

The ways of entering this world are limited, but those of leaving it seem infinite.

~ F. Gonzalez-Crussi, Notes of an Anatomist

For fun I once contrived a prejudice against persons delivered by caesarean section. During the brief (but not brief enough) period that I carried on the joke, I made a point of asking after every new acquaintance’s method of birth, was it caesarean or vaginal? Any physical or intellectual clumsiness on the part of persons in the first category I glibly excused with the statement that, “after all, you can’t expect much of a Caesarean, can you?”
