I read about that this morning. Fascinating. Her family has been pretty gracious through it all -- they just wanted mom/grandma to be recognized for what was taken from her without her knowledge. And I have read in the past about the PROFITS that were made off of her cell line.
Billions! But not the people that originally distributed them. THe biological companies that got a hold of them and started selling them made it all.

It was sad in the book when the family talked abotu how they couldn't afford to go to the doctor and get the medicine that their mother's cells helped create.

Your cake was given away by your liberal friends to a person who's birthday it wasn't, so they would not feel discriminated against just because they weren't a "birthday boy".

See, you can legislate equality!

Friend is on vacation with her family (kids are 7, 5, and 1 in Washington DC and she's complaining on FB that nobody is having a good time and it's expensive and crowded.

Hurr durr. Going to museums and historical sites is not what I'd call fun for that age group.

I think it's a good thing. He's well known and he's stepping up to say he was wrong and to set the record straight.

More doctors should do that on everything. Both ways. When they find things more dangerous than first thought and when they find out things are not dangerous as what they may have first thought.

I'm really glad they were able to find help for this girl. I can't imagine having to watch my baby slip away like that.

Ah well, I guess they need it more than I do. My leaders said so.

And Black Forrest is also my favorite! And Dairy Queen ice cream cakes!
