The articles were from the Newark Star Ledger and the Newark Evening News.  As I sifted through the news clippings, they all had one thing in common: They were about my...

In my February column, I wrote about the fact that I had a stem cell transplant in early December 2019, about a month before I heard for the first time about the coronavirus.
