Llewellyn King mentions ME/myalgic encephalomyelitis in a political opinion article


Bundle of purpliness
Slash size of government? Think again
By Llewellyn King


This is an opinion article by Llewellyn King on a political issue but in the second paragraph from bottom, he mentions ME/myalgic encephalomyelitis:
"I also want the government to take diseases like myalgic encephalomyelitis seriously and bring hope to a million suffering Americans, and many millions more around the globe."​
