    A friend in Washington has advised me that Senator Reid will be the keynote speaker during the dedication ceremony on August 16. Wow!!! In addition, Senator John Ensign, Congresswoman Shelly Berkely, and Congressman Dean Heller will be there as well. My friend has also advised me that there will be a very very private and high level symposium with people like Ruscetti, Mikovits, Bagni presenting to other scientists, government types, physicians, and blood and lab companies (I would guess everybody but Abbott) the following day. That must be what Hillerby was referencing.

    I must be nearly brain-dead today. I missed Parvo's summary from two days ago. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the great transcription/summary Parvo! There's no way I could have listened and got all that out of it, so I appreciate your effort much more than you can probably imagine.

    That's very good news. I think if the WPI has good connections to politicians we don't have to worry. Now, PNAS, please print that d... paper...

    I don't read psych stuff on CFS often. But I think a very large amount of the psych people consider CFS to equal depression or anxiety or "stress," with "somatization." Therefore they, and those whom they convince, may not consider CFS to be in need of significant research per se - but instead, worthy of a small amount of specialized research as a special form of "somatized depression"... while most of the light to be shed on CFS will come from the general study of depression and somatization. Maybe Simon can let us know how well my notion corresponds with the general consensus in his profession.

    NIH already drops $400 million per annum under the category they call depression. A glance at <a href="http://report.nih.gov/rcdc/categories/">this budget</a href> will show that this probably includes almost all other "mental" illnesses, because they aren't listed in their own right.

    So part of that $400 million - a very ample portion I would hope - goes to fund brilliant work on conversion disorders, somatization, and what have you. So, viola!, got it all covered there when it comes to chronic whatever-they-call-it.

    A def or two for the noobs:

    Alors!
