    -I am hoping many of us can be pro-active in getting the news out regarding the Whittemore Peterson Institute and XMRV. (XAND)

    I simply called our local paper today and spoke with a reporter in the newsroom. I told her a new virus (XMRV) has been linked to CFS and cited the wesites of the Whittemore Peterson Institutes and Solve CFS/CFIDS. A big influence was citing that the NY Times, LA Times and Science magazine had released articles on Friday. I was transferred to the health editor and left my name and address. What if we all called our local newspapers? Think of the impact.

    I was also thinking of contacting my local American red Cross and asking what they will be doing to protect our nations blood supply? Just some "innocent" questions to get things going. We can do it.
