    Neurologist and author Oliver Sacks has died

    Renowned neurologist and author Oliver Sacks has died aged 82, in New York.

    The cause was cancer, said Kate Edgar, his longtime personal assistant.

    Dr. Sacks announced in February, in an Op-Ed essay in The New York Times, that an earlier melanoma in his eye had spread to his liver and that he was in the late stages of terminal cancer.

    Bummer! First E.L. Doctrow, now him. Two great writers gone. I loved "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat". I still have it. May have influenced my going into Speech Pathology. RIP Dr. Sacks.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
