Fight the Good Fight, Peter Jennings

I'm not a fan of his, but I wish him well in his fight against lung cancer.

Even I can't bring myself to kick a man when he's down. I hope he has a 100% recovery.

Agreed. It is not a fun fight, but one worth waging.

I wish people stopped smoking.

I am a converted non-smoker (last ciggy I had 'twas in 1988).

I believe he is a smoker isn't he?

Thanks for dropping by terry. Nice blog too.

felis, from what I heard him say tonight, he stopped smoking 20 years ago.... until 9/11 happened. Not sure if he meant only for that month or so or if had been smoking ever since.

I hope he wins the battle too.

I smoked for years and stopping was one of the hardest things I've ever done. It took me five or six tries over several years to finally do it—so hard. I haven't looked back, though. Breathing just feels so nice now, and I wouldn't be able to keep up with the dogs if I was smoking. Plus, being a human being, you can find new ways to handle stress.

I sincerely hope ... that Jennings perceived stature brings more "common folk" the BAD facts (refraining from using the word, "news," in order to create a "no pun zone") ... Smoking Kills! (... like a delayed, time bomb)


I "tried" it, when a youth. Then, $.25 (regular), $.27 (king size) a pack (... $2.50 +/- a carton). Now, paying $3.50 +/- a PACK seems an awful expensive manner to kill one's self ... one cigarette at a time? :(

SA,
A pack of ciggies in Oz gets close now to $15.00
Very expensive euthanasia.

felis, not to belabor the point; but as we were both "tickling" our respective keyboards ... my State of record is trying to "up the ante ..."

Wisconsin seeks to raise cigarette tax, $1
