The Bubble Boy

Dateline: Fri 03 Aug 2007

I have to head down the road today, so no lengthy comments until later. Altho here's a shoutout to Lalita Amos; got your back, woman.

For now, here's a story from the Houston Press worth sharing, about the bubble boy -- remember David Vetters, the child who was born without an immune system, who spent his young life in a medical bubble? He got the shallow PR treatment by People magazine and other media; his story was featured in a Hollywood movie. But who was David, really, and what concerns did he have about his life? This is a long read, what journalism used to be, but worthy on so many fronts.
