    According to Discover Magazine...

    quotes from the blog:

    "When I first started to read about XMRV some lines from Sympathy for the Devil, the Rolling Stones classic, came to mind:

    "Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name; but what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game"

    "And to thank those scientists who have been working on expanding our knowledge of this beast named XMRV. Their work in 2009 gives us hope that 2010 will be a better year."

    Thanks for this Oerganix. SCobb's blog piece was very nicely written, too.

    I really do think we would see some public backing away from this connection (XMRV/MECFS) at an institutional level, and by those who wish to be seen as science savvy, if the links were actually as tenuous as some would have us believe.

    thanks again

    Yes Oerganix, thanks. I love his writing-style.

    I think the message is getting out. Slowly but very surely.
