Another Public MS Sighting

I just learned that Michelle Obama's father had Multiple Sclerosis. He actually died of complications from MS which is very rare these days. Before dying, however, he supported a family of four on a city worker's salary and put two kids through Ivy League colleges.

I find this news strangely comforting. If Obama becomes President, I like the idea that the First Lady will have personal experience with MS. If there is a Supreme Court vacancy and one possible nominee has written opinions against stem cell research, maybe she will whisper in his ear that he should take a pass.
