It can be boring when someone talks about themselves. Today I’ll take the risk.
I know I get into scraps and sometimes overstep the mark in clipping my opponents – and there’s always a few of them waiting impatiently for my demise.
They may not have to wait too much longer. I was diagnosed a year ago with the killing kind of cancer.
I’m only sharing this as the news seems to be getting out and some people seem to think I’ll soon be taking to my bed and softening my political views.
No such luck, I’m afraid. Most cancer sufferers think they can beat the odds. Why should I be any different?
Matt and I have always been on opposing sides of just about everything, but he, like Chris Trotter, deserve respect for their principles and integrity. I hope and will pray he recovers from his cancer to give us all many more years of opinion. Even if I will continue to disagree with him.
