Alright, this has nothing to do with EMS, writing, or anything that I tend to talk about here. However, my dad just brought it to my attention that the letter to the editor I wrote back in early January was actually published.
AD, now you and I are both in the Wall Street Journal ;)

Anyway, if you're interested, you can read it here. It's not very exciting or long, but hey, it's an accomplishment!

I'll write again soon,

Hmmm... that was over my head. All I know of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle is that is going to be compensated for to make transportaion possible in the Star Trek days by having a Heisenberg Compensator in every transporter. I am confused what that has to do with biology and the degradation of Darwin's Island. Maybe I didn't read the article. But you read the Wall Street Journal? You ARE smart! ;-) Congrats on being published!

Just like Scott there...you read the Wall Street Journal? Amazing...then again, I read it also and, I truly love it! Anyway with you being published, you are on your way! And, I love the way that you incorporated your middle initial in there...makes you sound serious like hey, "My name is Meris E. Shuwarger. I am here, and I am staying...if you do not care for my confidence or me as a person, then by all means, you are free to leave." Very nice.

Hi Sam,

I have an idea. Right now I am writer's blocked. I know you want me to somehow write a "Samantha" into one of my tales or stories, and I would like to do that for you. But . . . stupid writer's block. What I would like to do is an entirely fictional story (doesn't have to be about medicine--it could be a fairy tale or something crazy like that) where the heroine is Sam. But I need your help. PLEASE! Email me with some details or ideas about what you want my story to be about. It can be serious or silly. Then I will attempt to mold your hints into a story to post. Then I will be happy because I smashed a writer's block, and "your" name will finally be cast in a good light on my blog! Thank you for humoring a creepy old dude!
