Oh darn it to hell.

I have a sore throat.

For the moment, my doctor has advised me that I can continue to post at DU.

I just wanted to be upfront, and in full disclosure about this.

I have sent Skinner all of my health records, just in case.

I have instructed Skinner to release my health records once y'all have done the same.

In the meantime, please feel free to speculate on what fatal disease is causing my sore throat.

Thanks, and if I don't reply in the next 24 hours I'm probably dying or dead.

... is an early symptom of Alzheimer's-Parkinson's-MS-Dementia-Scurvy-Leprosy-Bubonic Plague.

I'm not surprised you have it. There seems to be a lot of it going around lately.

We've both had sore throats, sneezing, coughing for days now!

I have to go get my affairs in order.

You will be missed.

After that, who knows? This place could become a ghost town after we all start dying off from whatever it is that's goin' round.

Hang in there - thoughts, prayers, good vibes and all of the usual.

and let your best friend or neighbor start posting as Vice-KMOD. If you keep posting, the terrorists win.

it's clearly gout.

And no, I didn't stay at a HI Express last night - I got the info from Dr. Bornstien.

I put on one of those masks to read and post here, although it's probably too late. We're all doomed.

It's that orange spray-tan dust that seems to be floating through the airwaves from the Golden Tower that may do us all in this year. You end up breathing it in like coal dust in a mine, but unlike coal dust it ends up getting to your brain like prions.

We must be vewy vewy careful...
