Just received a personal response from David Hamilton, the author of the Wall Street Journal article so well written and received recently. He said he had more response to this particular article than any other he has written---approaching 200. This is what it means when we get to it and tell people how much it means when they pay attention to celiac or gluten intolerance issues and we need to keep doing that. Hope you all wrote to him and heard back. Have a Blessed Christmas. Barbara
