Low mileage on Dick Cheney's heart

As an on-going heart patient, I wish Dick Cheney a full, speedy recovery. But I think the press got his heart transplant exactly backwards. The docs wanted Cheney’s heart to transplant into another patient because it had been used so rarely.

Mark Shields says former Texas Governor Rick Perry achieved "career redemption" with his deftly delivery remarks at the Gridiron show in DC. Well that was easy.

President Obama to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” He was talking about missile defense. And it was a damned stupid remark.

Old saying: Comedy equals tragedy plus time.

Point of personal privilege: we will soon leave the land of milk and tundra. Tuesday, we’ll leave Austin for the long drive true north. We sold the house in Minneapolis and have to pack up and get out. Sure going to miss some sweet people up there. The mountains of N. Carolina are calling us. We’re getting closer to the heavens in more ways than one.

I hope your relocation goes perfectly, George. Do keep blogging.

Ever wonder what they would tell you if you needed a new heart? My guess is that you, at Cheney's age, might be told you are too old by Medicare.

Me, too.

NC is nice. I'm presuming you mean somewhere around Ashville, in the mountains. They have snow there, too, you know. Oh well. Good luck on your move. Hope you have someone else doing all the heavy lifting.
