What's New in Biodefense?
Common Diseases and the
hear this band hasnt had a gig since October 2005, when it
played the Wilson Hall at a send-off for Dushanka Kleinman, who
had been detailed to the OD to get the NIH Roadmap up and running.
After her success, she was returning to her home at NIDCR, where
she was deputy director, and NIH wanted to thank her not only with
commendations and food but with a rip-roaring musical tribute as
this group that called itself "The Directors"three
guitarists and one keyboardistwas called in. They did a great
job. They filled the hall with music both raucous and harmonic;
invented lyrics that fit the occasion to songs like "Do the
Locomotion," "Homeward Bound," and "On the Road
Again"; and generally rocked out like there was no tomorrow.
But we always thought there would surely be a tomorrow for so talented
a crew. And we have waited these many months for their return to
the stage. But, alas, they seem to have disappeared.
we are running this picture just because it gives us pleasure simply
to look at it and weve been wanting to for over a year nowand
because Kids Catalyst ran long this issue (see p.15) we had
this fitting space . . . .
