I just found this article in the times online version and thought it was good. By the way I had robotic prostatectomy last Wed and I'm feeling better each day.

Jon, he has an ongoing blog there. He and I are pretty much in the same boat. Read the responders, you will see a few HW brothers. I posted his links as did someone else (TimG?). Dana is a good guy and a great writer. He is an editor for the times. Sorry he joins us but glad we have an NY Times guy in the cause. He knows a friend of mine in NY ~ Ed Randall a big time sports broadcaster...
