Today We Are Grateful and Incredibly Happy

The ALS Registry Act was passed by unanimous consent in the Senate today after a compromise was brokered with Senator Coburn.

Thank you, Senator Reid.

Thank you, Senator Murkowski.

Thank you to every person who emailed a legislator or stalked a Senator in an airport or made a trip to Washington or to a local office to be heard.

Thank you to every person who raised Cain and made noise.

Thank you to everyone who wrote an op-ed or a letter to an editor.

Thanks to all who worked so hard that people with ALS will now be counted.

Now, let's use the clues and finally figure out this $%^&^(*(# disease!
