I edited the link above to the correct one. Sorry about the ad it sent you to. That must have been the pop-up that you find on a lot of pages. The one there now should take you to the article. Tattoo

Still some problems http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_down.gif . Arrived at 'Register NY Times .com', seeking a subscription. Would have liked to have been able to read the article.

I think I know what the problem may be http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/idea.gif The end of the address reads "TODAY'S Headline" . That would mean we get the hot topic for that day and not just a hot topic.

You should be able to just click that link above. I just tried it and did get the article. I am registered, however and receive the NYT email headlines, but that shouldn't prevent you from getting in I wouldn't think. It is a May 15,2002 article and has as the title:
Suit Says Company Promoted Drug in Exam Rooms

Try again and see if you can access it. Tattoo

Hi. I tried the link again and this time got that registration page. I went ahead and registered again because I have changed ISPs since I did register the first time, and when that was done, the page I wanted with the article was behind the registration page. This URL was in my browser. Maybe this will work. Tattoo
