Default Rush's Illness

I don't listen to him (don't listen to any talk-radio actually) but saw on-line that Rush has advance lung cancer and just announced it today. Details will be forth-coming. I do wish him the best and hope his treatments can at least bide him some time.

It is a terrible tragedy and hit me like a ton of bricks. Although I do not listen to Rush either I sometimes read his posts on FB.

The vile posts coming from "the other side" on Twitter are disgusting and depressing. I don't know what is wrong with some people.

Why people post their lives on Twitter I fail to understand.
The 'Trolls' and 'Sicko's' are just waiting to wallow in anyones misfortune!

I wish anyone with such a diagnosis strength and send prayers.

BUT be aware....there are many very mean spirited, insensitive people who use Twitter almost daily.

I wonder what the hateful "mainstream media" are going to say, not that I will pay them any attention.

Not a fan of him, and opposed to pretty much every opinion I've heard him say (or seen him tweet), and felt that he was callous and cruel in his remarks about Michael J. Fox and RBG. But I don't wish him any ill and in fact hope he is able to recover enough to enjoy the rest of his life - however long or short that may be.

Pretty much my view also.

It's simply putrid and sickening, to kick someone when they're down...regardless of what you think of them.

Not everyone feels that way of course, with the perfect example being...John McCain.

Under the cover of the key board creates some strange persona.

Anonymity provides an undeserved bravery to the otherwise meek and cowardly.

I'm not holding my breath though.

I know very little about him nor about his work but I’ve seen lung cancer take three of my dear family members. It’s a terrible way to go and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. I wish the truth would be graphically shown to everyone about how lung cancer aggressively and progressively chokes the life out of its victims because no one would want to risk that. It would be the strongest deterrent and the ultimate stop smoking message. Lung cancer is really awful. Of the deaths I have seen, it is be far the worst.

I pray for Rush and for all who suffer and for all of their caregivers as well.
