    Congratulations, Dr. Andersen! :-) And, THANK YOU, WRAL for putting this on your front webpage!

    Just think, folks...what if scientists got as much press and garnered as much enthusiam as pro sports "heros"? We'd have free&perfect energy, the cure for cancer, 20 years more to live, and on and on...
