Uh-Oh...and Why I Should Get More Sleep 

The WHO has announced that an Indonesian man died yesterday in what appears to be the first known case of the H5N1 avian flu doing a double jump in humans. That is, it went from person A to person B to person C. Hopefully this is not the beginning of a pandemic.

A UCLA study has found that long-term, heavy pot smoking does not increase lung cancer risk, contrary to expectations. Why is it illegal again?

I didn't get much sleep last nite, I was up late and then got up early to go to a breakfast with Andrew Hurst, who is running for Tom Davis' seat in Virginia. He seems really great, and so if you're a VA-11 resident (or even if not!), I encourage you to get involved. The bad news is that sleep deprivation may be linked to weight gain. A rather large study suggests that sleeping less than seven hours may be bad for you. Oops!
