I thought so. I remember chatting with you in kind of a mall or something like that in St.Louis. As I get older, the mind is the first thing to go. We only go a brief chance to chat in Tucson so glad to hear you are going to DC. We have another great conference planned. I look forward to catching up with you.

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it.
