Follow-up Letter to the Editor
"Nice pig article. My officemate is Chinese and she tells me that this is a special year in the Chinese calendar. It is called the Year of the Golden Fire Pig, it comes once every 600 years and it is considered a very lucky year to be born so Chinese hospitals are expecting more newborns this year.
Of course, all helixophiles are hoping that it is the year of the Blue Pig".
