Unless I'm sadly mistaken, I thought I saw a recent column from this fellow in which he announced he had been diagnosed as terminally ill.
Yes, I know you're not supposed to speak ill of the soon to be dead and if I'm wrong then I will apologize but in the meantime, isn't this just a further manifestation of an arrogant attitude which treats politics as some kind or sport? An activity for the personal gratification of the participants?
