Re "A desperate injection of stem cells and hope," Feb. 20: Kudos to Alan Zarembo for a masterful article about two scientifically uneducated people trying to profit from a new technology (stem cell research) they couldn't understand. Medical quackery still exists. The article also gives voice to the feelings of hopelessness that some experience when faced with chronic untreatable, or eventually lethal, diseases. Would that we all had the grace of Lou Gehrig, or the quiet courage of so many others in the face of bad medical news.
