    urging her to get involved with Bb the spirochetes of Lyme disease as she had done so muh research on other spirochetes.  As I recall she did get involved with another female researcher( whose name escapes me at the moment) to do some study of Bb.   It wowed me that she bothered to respond to someone totally not in her academic world.  

    She was a strong and innovative thinker.   I admired her greatly.

      She is truly a remarkable person!

      An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.
