Dr. Orthochick: Journal club

Dr. J: [That article you assigned to Dr. New for journal club] was terrible!

Me: Uh, I'm sorry...

Dr. J: It didn't tell us anything! It said doing a procedure that we know doesn't work won't work! Why would you select an article like that?

Me: Uh, sorry. Did you like the article I assigned you at least?

Dr. J: Well, it was an important article, it was significant, I've used [the concept] in my practice since you assigned it to me at the beginning of the month, and I think it was one that we should all read, but it wasn't very controversial. Try to do a better job for next month.

I must really be missing the point of journal club if "significant," "useful" and "one that we should all read" is still not good enough.
