This just in
Due to the ongoing expenses of maintaining my household, I am today announcing that my wife, daughter and I are merging with the UPMC Health System. Our home will now be called UPMC Potts Residence. We will continue to live there, and daily operations will be unaffected for the foreseeable future.
Talks also are underway for the health care giant to purchase this blog and operate it under the name The UPMC Conversation. The Dead Tree Blog will remain independent.
