Who are these people? And why are they here?

There's a story in my family that starts with some elderly relatives being brought to the wedding of their grand-daughter. Maybe her second wedding, maybe her third. In any event, the grandmother was having a tough time putting the pieces together. Whether that had to do with organic brain dysfunction or simple human error in cateloguing multiple unions of multiple grandchildren isn't clear.

As the bride marched upon the altar, the grandmother was heard to say quite loudly, "Who are these people? And why are they here?" This question has remained active in my family, where we use it to qualify credentials or mission objectives when something doesn't seem quite right.

You can find some answers to this question, this time asked about me as part of Medscape's "meet the hosts of Grand Rounds" series. Here's the link:
