Lung cancer seems to favor smokers.

I hope he recovers fully.

And I hope he never does another radio show again.

Often that indicates the non-smoker lived or worked with smokers. But it is possible for lung cancer to be from causes other than smoking or second hand exposure.

She worked at Grady Hospital in Atlanta as a nurse. Maybe they smoked there.

wave rider may have the best answer for that. But I recall it was't until the 1980's that hospitals and other medical care places around here started banning smoking and either moved it to dedicated spaces inside or sent smokers outside.

He didn't have lung cancer until he started playing up Trump. Just sayin'


Get well Rush and then retire.

Using a "do not link" service as to not boost his ad revenue.

Nurses - as a group - are still smokestacks. Obviously fewer now than 25-50 years ago, but back then - whoa Nellie!

Hospitals around here have banned smoking from the entire property because the cloud of smoke created by employees hovering at the doorways was insane.

Buried my youngest aunt a year ago...she was the heaviest smoker I ever knew, yet never seemed to be sick (never went to doctor)

Started having increasingly severe back pain early 2018...after visits to several specialists she was scheduled for spinal surgery end of summer...had to stop the surgery...sent up to oncology, received terminal cancer diagnosis.

Got her onto Hospice that fall...dead about a week into 2019.

In terms of cancer and his mortality, I think that's mostly something for in-family. If he wants to have a political life beyond that still, then my feelings about him won't change about that.

My college friend who smoked like a chimney passed 10 years ago in April, he was only 43. Bladder cancer, very common in smokers.

I’m with Hal on this one.

I’m going to file this under “karma”.

My dad smoked Camel straights (no filter) from age 13 until 65. He had a couple of strokes. Those slowed him down. Parkinson’s finished him off. Made it to 79 yrs old. When I was growing up, he seemed like the meanest, most stubborn person alive. And for the last 5 years of his life, he was the most kind and loving he had been all his life.

Sorry to ramble on.

“Rush is both a colleague and a dear friend, and we know he will handle the situation with courage and grace," said Rich Bressler, the president of Premiere's parent company iHeartMedia, in a statement. "We know millions of people nationwide join me and all of iHeart in wishing him a full recovery."

I won’t be one of those wishing him a full recovery. He has more listeners than Faux has viewers and he spews more hate, too. But then he is just an entertainer, unlike Faux News.

I agree with half this statement. Will let you decide which half.

He's an incredibly mean, viscous, all around contemptible individual. His health didn't create him, his drive for identity, wealth and influence did. Now his health has failed him but that doesn't change who he is or was. and is unlikely to impact his personality whatever remaining drive he holds on to.

Caring for someone close and them caring for you is worth a good ramble if anything is.

Ooh. Burn.

Yeah, he’s poisoned discourse, and poisoned himself. But I’m with mrbigstuff. Recover, and then retire or have an epiphany and apologize for your misspent life.

PS- the new immunotherapies are often pretty effective in lung cancer. Friend of my FIL with lung Ca was on chemo and circling the drain a few years ago, and now with Keytruda he’s stabilized, still around, and looking better.

[en.wikipedia.org]

The presidential medal seeks to recognize those people who have made "an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors"

...It was established in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy, superseding the Medal of Freedom that was established by President Harry S. Truman in 1945 to honor civilian service during World War II.



...There is no precedent for revoking a Medal of Freedom.
