If this is answered in "How We Die," I'm cheating.
If it's conceivable that research can
add a few years of pleasant life, should support of research to that end be encouraged? Perhaps futile, since its promise is paltry and non-competitive compared to what most Americans believe God will deliver.

If I hadn't awakened particularly early this morning, I'd have missed this fascinating conversation. You and I met some years ago when you were a speaker at Washington University in St. Louis. I was then William Landau's secretary I've (since retired,, but not him!), and it was a thrill to meet you. I've kept up with you through your writing. Keep it coming, Dr. Nuland.
Stay well, Pat Hammond

Dr. Nuland brought me back to my childhood , a few blocks from where he lived in the west Bronx(oh yes that was a little higher status than the rest of the Bronx, except if you lived on the GRAND CONCOURSE.
I am awed by his prodigious memeory concerning the quality of life we all had as children and how far so many of us have come after leaving the beautiful Bronx. It was magical and you found love all over the place, from your parents, close relatives living nearby, neighbors and chums.
His insight into other aspects of our generation is wonderful to read.
