Yes, Virginia, maybe there is a just God.
The price of a dissolute life does not always arrive as we expect it to. I’ve been anticipating my own consequential imminent demise for 40 years but here I still am, surprise surprise.
Bush Family BFF Rush Limbaugh may not be so lucky. First he lost his hearing due to years of painkiller abuse. Now he’s been hauled off to a Honolulu hospital for chest pains developed while on a golf course, not usually a very strenuous activity. Maybe he should have taken #41’s advice and slowed down his, ahem, backswing.
For Limbaugh’s sake I hope he is a fan of Jack Nicholas or Diane Keaton,
and provided his doctors with full disclosure.
My only question now is: How quickly can we get privileges at Queens for Jack Kevorkian?*
* [Full disclosure, I spent several very interesting years studying end-of-life pathophysiology including research on non-invasive means of measuring oxygen concentration of the inner surface of the upper eyelid [I am not the author of this article] in advance of impending death, based in significant part on Kevorkian’s early medical research. He is in my opinion a very intelligent and deeply compassionate man, unfairly persecuted and maligned.]
