Cutest story in the news today:

CINCINNATI, March 19 (UPI) — An Ohio man saved his fiancee and infant son from a fire after he nearly drove away to work but returned to kiss the baby goodbye.

Kevin Roy said he realized while pulling out of his driveway Tuesday morning that he had forgotten to kiss his 1-year-old son, Koby, goodbye, WLWT-TV, Cincinnati, reported Wednesday.

“I just wanted to tell him I loved him before I left,” Roy said. “I pulled up to the end of the driveway and thought, ‘I want to go in and tell him bye,’ because I normally do. It’s just something I do on a daily basis, so I decided to go back in.”

Roy said his house was filled with smoke when he walked back in the door. He said he was able to locate and wake his sleeping fiancee, Ashley Swingley, but Koby’s room was filled with so much smoke that the parents could not see inside.

“I couldn’t even see into his room, and I just grabbed him and ran outside,” said Swingley.

The fire, which destroyed the house and nearly all of its contents, is under investigation.

For anyone who finds Christina Aguilera as difficult to understand as me.  I found this when I googled lyrics for a song I heard on the radio today.  It’s funny/cute.

Cancer is difficult.  In every sense of the word.  It is difficult to detect early(in some forms), it is difficult to treat, it is difficult to deal with.  Individuals and families are devastated by the effects of the disease and even by the treatment.  It is particularly heart wrenching to read stories about childhood cancers.  But it is important.  The things learned from the study of end stage cancer is often among the most cutting edge research.  People will be open to may treatment courses when the alternative is death.  While the vast majority of last minute experiments fail, and no magic cure is discovered, there are always exceptions.  Those exceptions are beautiful to read and I encourage you to read the following article.

From a human stand point, it is always refreshing to see the triumphant story of an underdog that overcomes some great challenge.  From clinical stand point, the same holds.  Many of the greatest achievements and breakthroughs in science have been laughed at originally and dismissed too quickly.  While the antiangiogenic chemotherapy may or may not go on to play a significant role in the treatment of cancer in the future, its pioneers like Dr. Judah Folkman who change the course of history.  Taking a different approach, trying new combinations of existing medicines, and being innovative in the treatment of cancer Dr. Judah Folkman saved Melanie McDaniel.  The McDaniel family is sharing her story as a tribute to Dr. Folkman who passed away in January.

Skateboards, Movies, and Homos?

March 6, 2008

I HATE Gus Van Sant. Let me get that out of the way first. Now sure he has been involved with many films I liked, such as Good Will Hunting. But My Private Idaho and Elephant are probably two of my least favorite movies of all time. Well he is directing the Harvey Milk biopic (wondering who is Harvey Milk?).  So I looked up the film because there is a lot of buzz about which celebrities are in it.  Currently Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, and James Franco are attached/filming.  But that is not the point of this post.  It turns out there is a Gus Van Sant movie coming out soon.  Paranoid Park.  Heres the plot line: A teenage skateboarder’s life begins to fray after he is involved in the accidental death of a security guard.  I watched the trailer and I want to see it.
