#1 I have a bad feeling about this - first the passing of Gen. Stormin' Norman, now on-going medical complications for CIC Bush 41.

#2 So do I - my father passed on two years ago this week, after having a month-long case of walking pneumonia. Then they discovered an underlying heart condition which had been going on for years, and those dominoes suddenly fell all in the wrong direction.

#3 Pneumonia is a common killer of the elderly. That metaphor of dominos falling is an apt one for the way many elders pass on, everything seems to go wrong at once.

#7 Sometimes, I'm glad these people are dying .. before they see what their country has turned into.

#8 Advisor said to "Put the harps away". So I'm not looking for him to die quite yet. Though I didn't particularly like how he fumbled everything away to Clinton. I feel alot of scorn mixed with admiration for the guy.

#9 Understood Charles, but would you like him as a next door neighbor? Would you like your kids to talk to him about what it's been been like?
History will look upon him very kindly.
