As for the story lines to watch on Election Day, there are a number of them. Some highlights:
Today, 85% of children diagnosed with cancer survive at least five years, and most are cured. But treatment is always a high-risk balancing act. Some therapies that might help children with their present cancers could increase the chances of other cancers popping up later in their lives.
And while treatment has improved, the transition from pediatric to adult care can be tricky. One of the biggest gaps is getting survivorship history to new primary-care doctors. Some patients just want to put their cancer behind them, and other reasons lead them to resist checkups later in life.
The federal government recently announced that a painting stolen by the Nazis in 1933 had been recovered from a museum in upstate New York. And that made a curator at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts do a double take.
Well, first, she was interested in the history of the piece. Second, she wondered how the painting made its way to upstate New York. Third, she was curious about the recovery and restitution efforts. But, mostly, she wondered why the painting bore a striking resemblance to one in PAFA’s permanent collection.
Before it gets too cold, get out there and enjoy that fall sunshine. Maybe take a few pics the way @chuckseye did.

“We are not loyal to one president. We understand that presidents change and so do policies and priorities. We carry out those policies, regardless of whether we personally agree with them.
