It's hard to believe that you did not receive any letters re: Jim Washburn's "Wanna See Something Really Scary?" (Nov. 1). So here's one: the article was great! Just about every weekend, I head directly for the OC Weekly's distribution point.

In Nick Schou's "Critical Mass" (Nov. 29), I think you have an inadvertent error. Your article states, "Their chief goal: combat the constant turnover of nurses, which they blame for a low patient-to-nurse ratio at their hospital." That means there are few patients per nurse. The universal complaint is too many patients per nurse, which is expressed by a high patient-to-nurse ration. I expect that that is what was intended.

Oh, well. One mistake per week ain't bad.
