Duh No, I was the one who was confused. I knew this was a fictional person the first time I read it. The second time I read it, I thought it was such a brilliant idea that I forgot it wasn't real. So, to summarize possible collaborators: Lyme Disease organizations Gulf War (and other?) vets Women's groups AIDS Pharmaceutical companies (?) Post polio? Other? I added Lyme. There's a representative or senator Smith in New Jersey who has introduced legislation for people with Lyme. So, Levi what did you have in mind? Doing a poll on this website? Would the purpose of the poll be to get input? To find out which whereases people liked best? Then circulating a (worldwide?) petition? Then trying to find a congressperson to introduce it? Then trying to get other congress people to co-sponsor it? Is that how it works?
