Very nice piece, if a little hazy on details.
Katherine, how would you
suggest that we thank _60 Minutes_? We can tweet to them, although there
may be better ways.

Excellent, thanks Katherine. I'll check the
60 Minutes segment to see if
they have ideas that I can reuse for the video productions that some of
are working on this year. It sounds like their
intended audience is
different, more aimed at educating readers than educating potential
or researchers, so it remains to be seen how much
overlap there will be.
look forward to watching the episode.
