nnnnnDuring “For the Benefits of My Patients,” Asten reflects upon the reasons he went into forensic science and comments, nnnn“I was in medical school, I couldn’t decide what to specialize in, and then suddenly, my father died. He was a terrific guy, a great outdoorsman, rough and tumble, and… and he went fishing one day, and he (drank) had some contaminated waters and he died. Now, I found out that a week earlier, two other men had the same water and they died. And that idiot, who did the autopsy was so inept that he couldn’t determine the cause of death in the autopsy. … My father died and it was just a complete waste. So anyway, I vowed that I would never let that happen again. So, how’s that for unrealistic idealism?”n
