Wednesday November 19, 2003. To Pillsbury House, where I did data entry for the Community Barter Network. Most of it went smoothly.

It didn't work.

Called HealthPartners for an appointment tomorrow. Got one at 9 in the morning, which is earlier than I've been waking up.

Smallpox in Europe selected for genetic mutation that confers resistance to HIV infection
In the 2,000 years before its eradication in 1978, smallpox killed as many as 30 percent of all children under 10. According to two UC Berkeley population geneticists, this high mortality rate selected for a genetic mutation that now appears in 10 percent of all Europeans, and coincidentally protects these people from HIV infection.
