News is sketchy at the moment, but he apparently went into the ICE on Friday with either tracheal CA (very bad) or thyroid CA (not so bad unless advanced). Shit, they just said he's had a tracheotomy and the dx. is thyroid CA. Somehow Bush has not appointed a Supreme Ct. justice during his first term. This could actually change the face of the election only 8 days away. The issues of abortion, gay rights, and untold other contentious issues could turn on whether we have a demorcrat or republican in office for the next 4 years as there are multiple justices in their 70s on the court. The balance is good now, but give Bush a chance to appoint 2-3 conservative justices and this country could be looking at the dark ages of civil rights again. This is the story to watch this last 8 days before the election...IMO.
