Thanks for popping by on a Wednesday morning, even if the news for today probably won’t be as exciting as it was seven days ago. Thanks, too, for your patience with the website this week… the people responsible for the tech glitches have been appropriately dealt with.

Look, I know that today’s SBP is the girl that you’re dancing with while you’re looking around the club for that special someone else. I can live with that, and assure you that the news you’re refreshing your computer for will be here around… say… 10:00 or so. In the meantime this is stuck in my head (thanks Jason), so let it wash over you until you find your next dance partner.

Welp, there’s only so much Midwest my family can handle. Wait… that’s not right. There’s only so much of my family that the Midwest can handle. That’s more accurate. Since I’m flying back to LaLa land as we speak, here’s some traveling music for your morning interlude.

Here is some research from the folks at The James regarding the use of a deadly life form, a virus, along with a cancer targeting agent to kill cancer cells. This is a creation of a hunter-killer approach to cancer treatment and therapy.
Giving low doses of a particular targeted agent with a cancer-killing virus might improve the effectiveness of the virus as a treatment for cancer, according to a study led by researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).
Viruses designed to kill cancer cells are being used in clinical trials to treat brain cancer and other malignancies.
This study suggests that combining a particular targeted agent with a cancer-killing virus might improve the virus’s ability to kill cancer cells.
The findings support the testing of this combination therapy in a clinical trial.
In other news, Dr. Carbone of The James discusses specific biomarkers to assist in diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. It’s a long, long journey, but, small steps, folks..

A little while back I let it out of the bag that one of my favorite writers is Sports Illustrated’s Peter King.
Forget what you think of him as an analyst on Sunday Night Football, his columns are top notch and he has a style unique to himself. (One of these days I’ll spill who my favorite is and if you read his work you’ll instantly see the influence)
One of King’s mainstays is his Monday Morning Quarterback segment that goes live (you guessed it!) on Monday mornings. Inside the MMQB piece each week is a segment he calls “10 things I think I think”. His 10 things encompass everything from the NFL to his favorite order at Starbucks.
Last summer I did my own tribute to Peter King by going through some things I think I thought. With this being the dead period for college football, I figured “why not” and decided to do it again. So, without further ado, here are: Things I Think That I Think.
Greetings from the Windy City… the family vacation continues, and we’ve survived a trip to the Mitten State That Sucks. Today’s soundtrack is my wife’s favorite song about Carl Sandburg’s home.
