Gene May Trigger Rare Esophageal Disorder
The New York Times, Feb. 14 -- Genes prove it: A rare but devastating esophageal illness that&squot;s on the rise isn&squot;t hard-to-treat acid reflux as once suspected but a completely different disease -- one linked to allergies. Known by the tongue-twisting name eosinophilic esophagitis, the worst cases of this mysterious disease can force children onto liquid diets and feeding tubes, and leave adults with an esophagus so narrowed that food gets trapped in it. With no proven treatments, doctors try creative experiments, including a new attempt to coat patients&squot; inflamed throats with a paste made from a popular asthma medicine and the sugar substitute Splenda.

Will city planning take new direction?
San Diego Union-Tribune, Feb. 12 -- The options facing the mayor are many for a job that traces its roots 100 years back. Jerry Sanders can pick a visionary with big ideas to match those of other legendary San Diego planners, or someone who functions as an administrator who shepherds the issuing of building permits and coordinates Planning Commission reviews of projects.
