    I just bought copies of a book that has me as an author
    Strange feeling. I guess I could have had the publishing company send me a free copy, but I bought one for a friend and for myself.

    It's a textbook for research scientists about cystic fibrosis and I wrote one of the chapters. It took me about two weeks to write it, which is a record time for me. My first paper took me two years to write and even then I wouldn't send it out for publication. My second only took me a year, and I did send it for publication, although I don't like it, now.

    It's going to be strange, getting a book with my name in it as an author. But it feels really good. Especially so, since I am a self-taught scientist.

    She no doubt got her diploma from Ronco. And not one DUmmy called
    her on it as of yet.
    May the FORCE be with you!
