Noran Miss Pumkin Just got your book, look forward to the read now!

Lula Thank you for the invitation! Looking forward to reading "Head Cases". It's an important topic, especially with the injured soldiers returning from Iraq. Also something that happened to a family friend.

"Dead Men Walking" - read your excellent article in Discover.
