   I had always hoped that parents would read it before giving it to their
kids -- I wanted them to get the message that being short is okay, since
their worries affect their kids. And I wanted to deliver a second opinion on
hormone treatments.

  Parents, of course, feel comfortable getting in touch. So it's all good,
but I'd like to know what the younger readers think.

John, David and everyone thank you all so much for a lively
discussion.  As happens every two weeks, we will now be turning our
attention to a new book and author.  Please feel free to continue on
here as long as you'd like.

Same here.  Sorry  I was out of town for the last week or so of it.

While out of town, I picked up a copy of "Science Digest" from May
1944 at a used bookstore.  What should be on the inside front cover but
a story headlined "New Hope for Short People"!  It was a capsule
summary of an article from Science about the "isolation of the
growth-stimulating hormone from the pituitary gland".  Despite the
headline, the story did not get into details about who might "benefit"
from this discovery.

John , I'm still waiting to get feedback from my friend's kid.  The summer
is keeping her busy.
