Cancer does not discriminate. Too bad.

Nobody lives forever so who takes over? Have to think it will be someone who is smarter than just being able to read off a teleprompter. Maybe Winnie?

Itís brutal. Only 3% survival rate and it takes hold faster than other cancers.

Depends. Can she do avuncular as well as Alex?

Come to think of it, I'd rather she didn't get the job. If she does, I'll be stuck with watching Lacey Chabert on the Hallmark Channel.

I'll take Irony for $1000, Alex.

I'm trying to think of someone else in entertainment in the public eye, who managed to stay relevant and productive at such a high level like Alex has. The downside is that it makes it a lot harder on fans to accept when the frailties of the human condition inevitably arrive. Groucho Marx comes to mind, his quiz show was cancelled due to lower ratings when was around 71. From everything I've read, he was still his old self until he had his first stroke ten years later.

Say the secret word and win $100.


Groucho: I got $25 from Reader’s Digest last week for something I
never said. I get credit all the time for things I never said. You know that line in
You Bet Your Life? The guy says he has seventeen kids and I say: “I smoke a
cigar, but I take it out of my mouth occasionally”? I never said that.

Grouco on the political climate back in the day (seems to me, still relevant).
..

"All people are born alike, except Republicans and Democrats"

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it
everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the
wrong remedies."
