Here is an unusual one for Dr. Elias. June 14, 1990, at Lackland AFB did a magnificent job extracting a 2cm tumor from the middle of my brain. (As I always say, fortunately no vital organs were at risk.) I had just turned 26. This summer, June 2016, I will have lived another 26 years! You did a great job, Dr. Elias, and you suffered well through a number of bad jokes and gags I dumped on you! Happy New Year!
