  Title A fond farewell [editorial]
Journal Clin Chiropr. 2012 Dec;15(3-4):102-104
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial

Excerpt: After sixteen years, it seems strange to be putting pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) for the final time; not every issue of Clinical Chiropratic has had an editorial – I have always shared Abraham Lincoln's feeling that it is better at times to remain silent and perhaps be thought foolish then to open one's mouth and remove all doubt! If there has been nothing to say, then I have tried to avoid vacuous flannel.

Now I am left one final opportunity, I find myself with far too much to include in one editorial. There is also a unique need for self-discipline: how many editors get the opportunity to have the last word with no mechanism for any comeback!

It would, perhaps, be advisable to go back for advice to the first ever editorial in the British Journal of Chiropractic, as we then were, which was entitled (à la Dylan Thomas) “To begin at the beginning”. We should start, without doubt, with the award of the Royal Charter to the College of Chiropractors. This is the end of a process that has taken sixteen years – a remarkably short time, it took the paediatricians 35 years to get theirs – it is, however, the beginning of a new future for chiropractic.
