Best wishes Alex. I spent several hours last night with one of my best friends of the last 40 years, who has pancreatic cancer, too. He's standing the chemo pretty well, but has lost a lot of weight. After a few more three week sessions of chemo, they will go to radiation therapy. Not fun and the odds are long, but my friend caught this stuff pretty early, maybe he can beat it.

It can be beaten, or at least fought off for awhile.

Alex would be cured of this by now if he were a Supreme Court Justice. Look how long the worm keeps hanging around.

Alex has been a great host! I just can't imagine anyone else hosting Jeopardy. But he is 80. And he has had an incredible life. It may be time to just enjoy whatever time he has left. He's earned it!!!

President Trump’s proposal to cut payroll taxes in the next coronavirus aid package is gaining little traction among Republicans on Capitol Hill as lawmakers ramp up negotiations on legislation that can pass through the House and Senate in the coming weeks.“There are some differences of opinion on the question of the payroll tax cut and whether that's the best way to go,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday. “And so, we're still under suffering for the administration on that.”The payroll tax cut proposal was barely discussed when Republicans met privately with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Tuesday, lawmakers said.

This war will not be fought like the American Revolution or the Civil War of 1861-65, where disciplined armies observed the laws of war and respected civilian lives.This war will be waged by far-left radicals and their deep-state puppet masters. For them, civilian casualties and massacres will not be moral evils, but merely part and parcel of their larger plan to “reconstruct” America.

At least 30 parents linked arms with one another on Saturday chanting "feds stay clear, moms are here!" and "leave our kids alone." The women, who were seen wearing bike helmets, demonstrated outside of a federal courthouse for a few hours, before officers used tear gas and flashed bangs to get them to leave the area, Buzzfeed reported. Federal officers were sent into the city last week after clashes between police and protesters ensued.

President Trump faces the prospect of growing dissent within his own party unless he can arrest his slide in the polls. Trump has fallen a significant distance behind presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in recent weeks, as the coronavirus has become resurgent. Republicans are eyeing their electoral futures with increasing nervousness. “Are they worried about Trump’s approval rating? Absolutely, because many of them know they cannot significantly outperform the president. If you are in a swing state or in a swing district, you need the president to be at least competitive,” said one former Republican member of Congress, who requested anonymity to speak candidly.
