    A fine mind, a dedicated journalist and a articulate writer bids us all adieu...

    Thanks Charles ....

    June 8, 2018I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence
    would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided
    on a different course for me.In August of last year, I underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in myabdomen. That operation was thought to have been a success, but it caused a cascade ofsecondary complications

    which I have been fighting in hospital ever since. It was along and hard fight with many setbacks, but I was steadily, if slowly, overcoming eachobstacle along the way and gradually making my way back to health.However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. There was no sign of itas recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. Mydoctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is thefinal verdict. My fight is over.I wish to thank my doctors and caregivers, whose efforts have been magnificent. Mydear friends, who have given me a lifetime of memories and whose support hassustained me through these difficult months. And all of my partners at The WashingtonPost, Fox News, and Crown Publishing.Lastly, I thank my colleagues, my readers, and my viewers, who have made my career
    possible and given consequence to my life’s work. I believe that the pursuit of truth and
    right ideas through honest debate and rigorous argument is a noble undertaking. I amgrateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this
    extraordinary nation’s destiny.
    I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life

    full and complete with the greatloves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave withthe knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.




    Thanks from BitterPill

    That was supposed to be "an articulate writer." Charles would have corrected it, so shall I.

    Is there any higher purpose than to live the life you intended to live?
