President Obama really "Gets it"

He understands the danger of a "medical economic pearl harbor"
He knows that a cure for Lung Cancer will be the most valuable economic treasure that the world has ever seen and that the country that owns it and similar cures will own the world.

The guy's a gift from God himself.

skerns--

The media never talks about this stuff becaude they don't have even the most basic scientific or mathematical background.

They're all read "Strunk and White" they've never even heard of "Boyce and Diprima"

In case you missed it, last February Dr. Wayne Marasco (at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute) announced the discovery of a revolutionary approach to the the treatment of flu that could well result in flu going the way of polio or smallpox.(http://www.thetechherald.com/article.php/200909/3036/Breakthrough-made-in-search-for-bird-flu-and-influenza-treatment) This is an excellent time to put some research money where it is needed. We are wildly upset at the moment over a few hundred deaths--know that flu--plain old flu--KILLS 40,000 people a year. Also know that in the laboratory scientists have never been able to transmit flu when the temperature is above 80 degrees (which is why people don't get flu in the summer)--so summer promises some relief from this onset of Mexican flu. Why the news media never tells you this stuff I never will know.
