    I looked it up and Brian Williams is an anchor on the NBC Nightly News which comes on at 6:30. It's a half an hour show.

    Six-thiry is what time zone, do you know?

    How appropriate to have a show about CFS on Halloween.

    I just read another thread on this that says they will talk about CFS each night this week with a special show on Friday night.

    BTW it's on at 6:30 in Detroit. Right when trick or treaters come!

    You're right. Bad timing.

    Where's that Tivo when you need it??

    is appreciated. I went on msn internet and could not find anything about the special or what Brian Wms would be discussing today even after doing a search on BW on that site????? Thankfully, my health insurance and my dear husband's job allows us to afford tivo. It saves so much time. To record and watch when I have the time AND SKIP THE COMMERCIALS---except I am finding that the commercials had their spot in my life--they were often my REST periods!?!?!?

    From CFIDS and it says that this show will air on Thursday!! It's related to the awareness campaing. I cut and pasted part of the newsletter below. So confusing. I'll have to watch the show all week just in case!

    From the CFIDS newsletter:
    Look for these stories about CFS!

    We have been actively pitching this story and there has been considerable early interest from the press. Although many reporters don’t let us know in advance, some have already confirmed their intention to do a story on CFS and the campaign. Look for these stories in the national press:

    NBC Nightly News – Thursday, November 2, on the evening news
    U.S. News and World Report – Friday, November 3
    United Press International – Friday, November 3, a syndicated article will be written and will be picked up by print and broadcast media across the country
    Fox Television Network – will do a national feed that can be picked up by Fox affiliates in cities across the country and aired on local news programs
    Clear Channel Radio Network – national feed that can be picked up by affiliates in cities across the country
    Rolanda Show, Greenstone Media Network - Friday, November 3, 1:20 p.m. (Eastern time)
