The Sting

The New York Times Magazine has a feature called "What they were thinking" where a photograph is shown along with dialogue from the subjects in the picture explaining what's on their mind. It's been one of my favorite features ever since I saw a picture of a middle-aged man dressed up like Gene Simmons of KISS, holding a briefcase as his elderly father fixes a buckle on one of his boots.

But I digress.... In today's paper, there's testimony from a pair of women who suffered from chronic fatigue and multiple sclerosis but have discovered a wonder drug that has turned their lives around. The medicine? Bee stings. They swear by it. The husband of one of the women became a bee-keeper.
