Contagious Divorce

Studies suggesting that divorce could be contagious are under serious critical fire. For the New York Times Health section. Peter Morance was the fantastic art director.

Roebling Suspension Bridge

Who pays for the electricity to light up the Roebling Suspension Bridge – Ohio or Kentucky? The question was asked by a grumpy taxpayer. For the Dr. Know column in Cincinnati magazine.

I've been longing for the opportunity to draw this beautiful landmark bridge. It was designed by John A. Roebling, who went on to design the Brooklyn Bridge.
Interesting yet sad sidenote on Roebling: 
 In 1867 Roebling started design work on what is now called the Brooklyn Bridge, spanning the East River in New York. One day in 1869 he was standing at the edge of a dock, working on fixing the location where the bridge would be built, when his foot was crushed by an arriving ferry. His injured toes were amputated. He refused further medical treatment and wanted to cure his foot by "water therapy" (continuous pouring of water over the wound). His condition deteriorated. He succumbed to tetanus 24 days after the accident.
