Kathy Griffin is revealing that she has lung cancer. The comedian, 60, took to social media to share the news Monday, adding that she has never smoked. “I’ve got to tell you guys something. I have cancer. I’m about to go into surgery to have half of my left lung removed,” Griffin wrote. “Yes, I have lung cancer even though I’ve never smoked!” She added that her cancer, which is "contained to my left lung," is in Stage 1 and her doctors are "very optimistic."

Serious question: can years of rabid hatred and evil behavior poison the body in this way?

There is nothing about this woman that I like. But I would not wish this on anyone. My husband did not have cancer but had to have more than half a lung removed because of a huge benign tumor. It was a difficult surgery and recovery. And we did not have to deal with a cancer diagnosis. This procedure and recovery might give her time to reflect on her past behavior.

I hate her politics, but I wish her well. I had a couple friends who died of lung cancer. I hope it does not happen to her and she recovers well, leaving her enough time to change her politics.

There is only one way to remove that cancer. The surgeon needs to perform the operation on live broadcast television. He needs to cut off her head and hold it up to the camera. Cuz that's funny right?

I've known two people who died of lung cancer who never smoked. It is a nasty way to die. Another non-smoking friend is waiting further tests, but likely has it as well.

Believe she lived in the south side of town, where they found a toxic dump site at a park many of us played sports on, and just used as play area. I would not doubt that there are many from Oak Park who have had cancer issues but due to most moving away they have not been able to track and trace accurately. I've had friends I grew up with who ended up with odd forms of cancer.

From many years of cancer caregiving, I learned that lung and oral cancer appears in a percentage of the cancer population that has never smoked. This lady has admitted to drug addiction -- whether or not that has an impact, I don't know because I'm no expert. But I do know that a person's state of mind has a lot to do with the quality of their health and how they respond to cancer treatment in particular. Although I do wish her well, I have to recognize she is one loathsome and bitter fraud, parading as a comedian; there is nothing funny or worthwhile in her act.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- The owners of a family-owned car dealership are devastated after eight vehicles were stolen in one night. They say someone got into the dealership overnight and that person was caught on surveillance video stealing car keys. "We don’t know how, we don’t know how they did it," said Marjan Kandi, who owns the dealership with her husband. The dealership is equipped with a security system and surveillance cameras but Lakewood Police say there was no sign of forced entry. Kandi says the thieves moved the outside security cameras.

NEW YORK — For most nights at the Tokyo Olympics, NBC’s prime time coverage is drawing about half the audience that the Games had in Rio de Janeiro five years ago. The numbers are sobering: Sunday’s NBC audience of 13 million was down 51% from the 26.7 million who watched the corresponding night in Rio. Saturday night was down 57%, last Wednesday down 53% and Tuesday down 58%, the Nielsen company said. NBC’s best night last week, when it reached 16.2 million on Thursday, was still down 43% from Rio, Nielsen said. “We’ve had some bad luck,” NBC Universal chief

Retailers, malls and supermarkets across New Jersey are seeing dramatic surges in shoplifting over the past 18 months. It’s believed to be fallout from the pandemic-related economic downturn that has caused workplace cutbacks and joblessness. This is a separate type of crime from highly-publicized organized retail theft rings. More people are resorting to shoplifting as a way to make ends meet. That’s no excuse; just a sad reality. It also ties up valuable law enforcement resources. Significant time and taxpayer money is expended to track down, arrest and prosecute shoplifting offenders.

It expired Sunday, leaving progressive Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez outraged and demanding that the House return from its August recess. Ocasio-Cortez said House Democratic leadership had an opportunity to hold a vote on extending the moratorium last week, but "there was frankly

TOKYO — The reason the United States finished a sobering fifth in the first Olympic mixed medley swimming relay was not the performance of any of the four swimmers. But the sight of 17-year-old Lydia Jacoby persevering through the breaststroke leg with her goggles in her mouth, having rolled down her face after diving in, served as an apt metaphor. It was a snapshot of a relay gone wrong. Scheduling issues, stamina issues, experience issues—and perhaps biggest of all, trust issues—likely played parts in the worst U.S. relay finish in Olympic history.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a moratorium on evictions for 60 days for U.S. counties with “substantial and high levels of community transmission” of the coronavirus, according to an agency news release. About 90 percent of the country will be covered by the ban as the virus’s delta variant spreads quickly throughout the country, Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in a statement.

Not one leader in the field has defended Western art music against these charges. Their silence is emblematic. Other supposed guardians of Western civilization, whether museum directors, humanities professors, or scientists, have gone AWOL in the face of similar claims, lest they themselves be denounced as racist.
