One of the very best new drama shows on TV this past year has been House, on FOX. British actor Hugh Laurie plays the brilliant yet grouchy Doctor House superbly, and his American accent is perfect. A recent episode (see plot summary at fox.com) dealt with Wegener's Granulomatosis, the very same rare disease of unknown origin that my friend in California Donna Ball has been struggling against. I mentioned Donna's illness almost a year ago, and shortly after she finishes her chemotherapy this month, doctors will reevaluate her condition. Our prayers will be with her. House happens to be one of Donna's favorite shows, too.
