Dr. Matt Matt

My daughter's partner, Matt Lewin, is an international authority on snake envenomation and made it onto the PBS news hour!

I don't have the video (which shows Matt's envenomation experiment on himself), but here is the article:

Dr Matt and Snakes

We call him Dr. Matt Matt because the only way I could get Thistle to eat salad was to pretend we were a gorilla family. Then she chose everyone's gorilla names: MiMi, MuMu, MayMay, MowMow, MaiMai, and Matt Matt.

At least she eats salad now.
