In addition to the factoids Maud posted about me, there’s something else you should know: When I was fourteen, after a lengthy stay in the desert southwest, I was diagnosed with diabetes. It was a very isolating experience. This is back when the internet as we know it didn’t exist and there weren’t any lists like this one to empower me. Today is World Diabetes Day, like St. Patrick’s Day without all the green. Anyway, I was happy to learn of this breakthrough. Thanks to Dave for the news.
