My mother says once you have cancer it will come back. It may go away for a while but it WILL come back. It sure seems to happen a lot.
"Starting with Rosie O'Donnell. I'm sorry, but I just don't get Rosie O'Donnell. I've seen her in three or four movies now, and she has generally had the same effect on me as fingernails on a blackboard.
"She's harsh and abrupt and staccato and doesn't seem to be having any fun. She looks mean."
But as long as Rosie was actually harsh, abrupt, and mean, then he should be fine, right?
This is jaw dropping.

Sad news. Ebert's a national treasure...yes, even considering 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.'
R1, you're mom is dumb. My grandmother had breast cancer in the mid-seventies, it was treated but indeed we were worried. She died three years ago at the age of 91 of dementia and other old-age related ailments. My aunt also had a bout of breast cancer, she died last year of a heart attack after being in remission for 17 years.
Is he still alive. God that old relic sure likes to cling to life doesn't he?
His face looks all wax. He looks worse than Lenin. The real one, not the Beatle.

And MY mother told me that once they cut you open and the air gets to it the cancer spreads even faster!
Sun Times has reported he's died.
Just that on the radio, R10. Wow, that seemed fast.
I had a teacher with whom I was very close to who fought breast cancer for 19 years before succumbing to it. She was first diagnosed at 32. She "beat" it but it returned 5 years later. She had a double mastectomy and it went into remission. After being cancer-free for 7 years, she thought she had finally beat it. She remarried and was happy again. At age 45, the cancer returned. In 2009, she died peacefully in her home at the age of 51.
My sister's MIL fought Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma for 5 years. It went into remission and a couple of years later it came roaring back. She died in excruciating pain in 2011.
r1 is right. At least from my personal experience.
I was trying to get on the Sun Times website, but it's locked up.
The Trib however has the story up front.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
