That is a clever headline.

Yes, but is it reproducible?

Is it to much to ask that you at least TRY to read the article before commenting?

I think y'all's sarcasm detectors are off.

I was marginally involved in the CF community for a long time, and have lost several friends to it. It's a horrible, horrible disease.
