I was going through papers a few nights ago, when I discovered the handwritten notes that Dr. Richardson (Dana-Farber) had written while I sat in an exam room, there in Boston, in March of 2003.  That was 11 years ago.  I remember him telling me, “We hope to get you to your 50th birthday — …

My new project
