    I think you ought to send your idea to Slate and the nyTImes before someone else tries to claim it!

    I often wonder how she's been doing. She's was so graciously out-of-the-closet about CFS and how it affected her. I recall my in-law's father mentioning that he had heard her speaking on NPR and finally understood what I've been going through. That's like getting a Christmas present!

    She was supposed to write another book but apparently her health has declined. I hope she's OK.

    For anyone that missed it, here is the article she wrote about her health. It was published in The New Yorker.

    Loved her article in the New Yorker magazine. I believe she has been very quiet for some time now. However, my brain fogged mind remembers that her new book is supposed to come out in 2010...but take that as rumor because I can't remember where I heard it. (UUGGGHH) I hope she is doing OK...she was oh so ill...and may still be. OH many of us are ,UGH again

    OK, I just found a brief interview with her on NPR.org about XMRV

    Poor Laura! She seems to have periods of semi-remission and then very bad relapse. I hope she's able to work on her book.

    So sad that she is so ill. She mentions fevers, chills and sweats and pain...OMG do I understand and empathize with her.

    I am sure if she were stronger we would hear more from her.
