Whilst browsing at Andrew Sullivan’s blog, I came across a note alerting all to an article P. J. O’Rourke published today at the L. A. Times, “Give me liberty and give me death: As one's mortality swings into view, be thankful for life -- and whiskey.”
The wonderful Mr. O’Rourke has been diagnosed with cancer (he calls it “cancer of the ass”). Thankfully, it’s “treatable, ” and he’s got a “95% chance of survival.” Prayers and best wishes for Mr. O’Rourke’s speedy, speedy recovery. A snifter or two of Scotch whiskey will be hoisted for you tonight.
