A Bigger Forum

A few weeks Susan posted a beautifully written comment on a column on health care reform in the New York Times by Nicholas Kristof about the dilemma my need for a new kidney placed on my sons who each have a 50/50 chance of being blessed with a diseased inheritance from their father. He was moved by Susan's words and asked if he could talk with us and possibly use our situation as a column. We agreed and after several weeks discussion among ourselves and with Mr. Kristof, the column was published today.  It captures the poignancy of the boys dilemma and relates it to the current national debate.
