Re: Christopher Smith's Lyme Disease Bill 2557

Spanky, you wrote (about IDSA:s guidelines):
So, they are directed at the vast majority...and not the isolated exception.
Is this a forum for "the vast majority" only?

Re: Christopher Smith's Lyme Disease Bill 2557

Shall we stick to the topic, and stop talking like "everyone in the whole world suffer from uncomplicated Lyme"?

Re: Christopher Smith's Lyme Disease Bill 2557

Spanky, since I already have answered the question (in an earlier post), I don't have to answer it again!
