    It scarcely qualifies as communication, does it. I already got bonus points for recognizing Johnny Carson at all.
    Yeah, some things are definitely lost in translation.
    But, some day there will be a trivia question about Carnac, and you can thank us for your getting it right.

    Generally the State governor can either appoint a replacement or call for an election for a replacement. It can vary by state. Arizona, it seems is one in which the governor would pick his replacement.
    And Senator McCain just won a new term in the last election. So, we are talking almost a full six year term.
    Apparently, he already went through surgery to remove the stuff. If he can deal with the Chemo and radiation and such, He may stick around.

    I wish him luck.

    Lars
    Thank You
    I haven't heard about the surgery yet - by 9 A.M. this morn. our electricity went out until @ 2.. so no news.
    You know his skin cancer that was removed off his left side ( this is how all this started) any way that left side never seemed to heal properly - it was always swollen & that bothered me - I didn't think the swelling was right. Not sure who the Gov. will pick to run McCain's term - wasn't sure how that all transpired thanks

    All we can do wish the McCain's the best

    Re: John McCain Brain Cancer

    I saw a prog on Guantanamo some time back. Didn't tell me anything I didn't know, factually, that I can recall, but there was one interview I remember with someone military who worked there who talked about meeting McCain to explain how waterboarding and sleep deprivation and suchlike were justifiable interrogation techniques and not torture at all (which they had talked themselves into believing). McCain apparently listened and replied, "It's all torture," and left. It had a big impact on that person, coming from someone who was also military and who'd been on the receiving end.

    Someone had to say it, and he did.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    McCain is addressing the Senate - he doesn't look that bad.
    He has a huge scar on his forehead & a black eye.

    McCain went to the Mayo Clinic - wonder why he didn't go to the VA Hospital?

    Having been to a couple of VA hospitals, I think I know the answer to that.
    I'm of the opinion that all the money being put into VA medical system would have been better spent in the civilian medical world.

    Well
    McCain should eat his own food.

    Re: John McCain Brain Cancer

    I get all my healthcare from the VA and besides the fact that they appear to care more about behavior than health, and the nurses are control freaks, I've no other complaints. My hearing aids are top-notch and my surgery had gone very well.

    Funny thing is that talking to other patients while at the VA hospital we agree that we're cared for well enough. However, the minute I inject the idea of single payer for everyone else, they become defensive. Republican head-nodders no doubt. Republicans love their welfare.

    I don't understand your system. there was a poll done here a little while ago . About Medicare. People would prefer to pay more into medicare levies than go to private health insurance.(everyone who earns over a certain dollar pays an annual levy (around $200 out of their tax rebate) the thing is it pays for everyone . Everyone can use our hospitals and get top notch care without forking out a fortune to do so. As I found out recently, even foreigners to our fair country get free health care in emergencies. No matter the cost. ..... You're welcome! But I do remember in America having to wait for a doctor to see our son IN EMERGENCY and wouldn't do so until they had confirmation of our travel insurance.
