I am still not well at all and sad, and not much inclined to write about
various topics. Besides, I have been busily occupied on the other forum,
that still is being surrected. As I am very..."fatigued", here just two
references, namely to parts I and II on a new Blog about ME, namely
These tell the story of what happened around ME
since the paper in Science about XMRV
last October. It is by an American journalist, Mindy Kitei,
who is quite informed and writes well, if like a journalist: There is a
lot there, rendered quite clearly, in a relatively brief compass, with
quite a few helpful links also.
The title is well chosen, for it is both metaphorically and literally
true, on several levels also.
In any case, this is good reporting on a complex story, by someone who
must have read quite a lot of the relevant background materials. There is
more to follow, and the Blog seems just started, although it was picked
up by both forums about ME I read.
P.S. The new forum? As I already said or implied: It's in the
process of being born. On Phoenix Rising - now with ads hanging around
the poor beastie's neck - there is a rather curious discussion about it,
under the title
Where has everyone gone? Why is this site so empty? (yes, it's a
link) that's also interesting on various levels and from various points
of view (psychologically, rhetorically, logically, morally, humanly...),
but that's just for the record for the moment.
