I want to take a moment and thank those members of my adoring public who have contributed to my Walk to Defeat ALS effort (see the sidebar on the right). With three weeks to go, there is still plenty of time to make a donation toward this campaign, which benefits an association whose purpose is to help people with this stupid disease. Each chapter is completely self supported, so your contributions make it possible for them to continue to provide vitally important services. If you haven't yet, please do consider making a gift.
