    As Steve pointed out, the story is mentioned here. I'm surprised it's not on starwars.com yet but I seriously bet it will be.

    Not that I know of. If it doesn't pertain to trashy politics or a heinous crime they don't bother to cover it.
    Actually, this is the type of thing that would be perfect for O'Reilly's "Pinheads & Patriots" segment at the end of his show. Bobafrett would obviously fall under the "Patriot" category. Well done, sir. I hope you are both doing fine and make full recoveries.

    His health aspects are essentially done, but in May he'll be going in for surgery to remove the cyst-riddled old kidneys finally.

For two people who had never actually met in person to go through this is astounding, it really brought a lump to my throat when I read about it.

    Huge respect and admiration goes out to Barry, a real hero among men, and to Josh, of course, who has been battling bravely for so long. Wishing you both a speedy recovery, and MTFBWY.

    Right on!

    It got a quick mention in USA Today, and it's getting out there a little more today and tomorrow in other outlets.

    He called me the day of the surgery at 8:30pm, only 4 hours after the surgery was completed. We talked with him and a mutual friend for a few, then later that night he called me back and talked until 2am where I finally had to grab sleep. So he's doing really well in that regard. When you talked to him yesterday though, he hadn't gotten much sleep, I called a little after you to see how he was doing and he was sleepy. Then he called me back at 3 in the morning and left a voicemail saying he only got about 5 hours of sleep. So yeah, he's back to using the phone.


    Oh, and he said he plans to take Barry to a Queensryche concert next year. So Barry really only did this for concert tickets to avoid Ticketmaster's markups.
    This year actually, in 3 months. And I'd say Barry giving up a kidney is about par for the course with Ticketmaster fees.

    Wow, so the recession is even hitting Ticketmaster.

    I'm glad to hear everyone is doing well. Barry did a great thing (that's an understatement) and he is to be commended.

    I talk to Tycho on the phone from time to time too and I look forward to hearing from him again once he has recovered.

    I was interested to know that we all meet here every night. Remember, last one out, turn off the lights.

    I also enjoyed how the woman anchor kind of snorted/laughed/chuckled at the end of the story. Classy.
