Death Gets Thomas H. Weller

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

Dr. Thomas H. Weller, who shared the 1954 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his research on the polio virus, died Saturday. He was 93.

In a 2003 New York Times interview, George Miller, a Yale virologist, described the breakthrough by Dr. Weller and his colleagues as "one of the major discoveries in virology, cell biology, and molecular biology in the 20th century."
Congratulations and 24 points awarded to Live Free or Die Hard. The Rosters and Standings have been updated.
