Retro Garlic ... Boy, That Karma Thing Works Fast!

I espied a headline last evening that, well, jarred me in a certain way

Don Imus Suffering From Stage II Prostate Cancer

The link was from Fox News (which automatically makes it suspect - especially with what they did the other day, smearing VP Biden), and searching this morning wasn't yielding much more info on it.

So, we cull from the San Jose Mercury News.

People: Radio host Don Imus announces on air he has prostate cancer

Controversial radio host Don Imus announced on the air Monday morning that he has Stage 2 prostate cancer.

Colleagues said the cancer was considered treatable and that the prognosis was good.

"The day you find out is fine," Imus told his listeners on the "Imus in the Morning" show. "But the next morning when you get up, your knees are shaking. I didn't think I could make it to work."
Now, there could be numerous factors to bring about his cancer, including genes, lifestyle, diet, environment, etc., but you do have to think about it ...


It was just a little less then two-years ago, remember?

As someone I talked to this morning noted, "It's going to make it tougher for him, to talk out of his ass ..."

And, yes, save your "asshole" jokes for the comment section.
