I am writing this Editorial on October 21, 2015. This is the date when, in the second installment of the hugely successful “Back to the Future” film trilogy, the time-traveling DeLorean arrives for Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd to continue their onscreen adventures. Like the years 1984 and 2001, this date reminds me of how what is envisioned as futuristic in some prior era rarely lives up to the billing. Our everyday realities just aren’t as exciting as what brilliant writers (Orwell), directors (Kubrick), or Hollywood studios (Universal) imagined so many years ago. Like anniversaries or millennial thresholds, though, moments like these do serve the useful purpose of allowing one to take inventory of how far our knowledge and skills have come—or more commonly how far we have yet to go. Thus is the story of cytomegalovirus, or CMV.
