Frank, the blogger, and I became facebook friends, and I am happy to share http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifthat he has book out! Fading Ads of New York City and there is a wonderful piece in The New York Times about it !

The Ninjanurse is a true Rhode Islander, although she doesn't have the strong accent so many project. She is a tremendous writer and friend and nurse, and I have been honored to share a workplace with her.
The recent column about Blossom S. Kirschenbaum is worth reading, as are all of her posts.

I would rather we devoted resources to HIV research than to chemical weaponry.
