Thank you for this story, Jeremy. I was saddened to learn of Congressman DeSaulnier's illness when it was reported earlier, and have often wondered about his progress. He surely appears more gaunt, but I hope that will soon be remedied. Wishing him the best for a speedy and complete recovery. We need his brand of politician more than ever in my lifetime.
