By the way, listening to Ian Anderson I think that Tony’s nagging about getting a colonoscopy might have saved Mr. Anderson’s life, from something he said.

Ton Snow Letter to a blogger

“I received an e-mail from Mr. Snow encouraging me to fight on and have faith. A portion of that letter:
First, enlist as much love and support from friends as you can, and don’t be shy. One of the great distinguishing characteristic of Americans is that they always want a chance to do something good. Many are doing good things for you right now, many completely unknown to you. Some people are afraid of admitting to cancer because they worry that others will treat them like freaks. A very few people will; most will rally in wondrous and suprising ways. Give them a chance to help. They’ll come through for you.
Second, talk to other cancer patients. They have street cred others don’t. For instance, you’re probably now noticing twinges and random pains in far-flung parts of your body. This sort of stuff has been going on your entire life, and you have paid no heed. Now, however, the mere threat of cancer has you wondering whether the killer cells have fiendishly relocated to some unusual part of your body — from your toes to your earlobes, along with every viscera and soft tissue in between. I remember thinking at one point that pressure in my forehead must have been a sure indicator of brain cancer. Instead, I just had sinus congestion. This sort of panic is normal: I don’t know a single cancer patient who hasn’t experienced it in one way, shape or form. I finally called my internist and informed him that I was going nuts and needed some sort of stuff to calm me down. He prescribed Xanax. I took exactly one — conversations with doctors and other cancer patients managed to calm my nerves even better than drugs.

Third, learn as much as you can — ignorance is your enemy — but don’t get too hooked on internet sites. Many of them are idiotic. Better to consult with your MD Anderson trained doc, who can steer you to stuff that might be helpful. Look especially for success stories. You’d be amazed at how far medicine has come in the last 15 years, and how effective the meds are.

Fourth, keep the fighting attitude. A friend of mine — a survivor of simultaneous lung, breast and armpit lymph cancers — described sitting in meetings with fellow breast cancer patients. Some just looked defeated, even though each one of them had far less severe cases than she had. Not one of the defeated-looking patients made it. You’ll find that it’s surprisingly easy to remain combative once you’ve begun to shuck aside some of the fear. Just think about the people you love and the things you want to do with them in the years ahead. That should be all the inspiration you need. Furthermore, you’ll find that your attitude will change (likely for the better) the moment you get into treatment. It’s like going from pre-game jitters to the game. Once the game is on, you don’t have any choice. You have to play. So play to win.

Fifth: Realize that fear is a complete waste of time, even though it will creep up on you from time to time. Your full-time job now is to get well. Blogs are nice, but living is more fundamental. The most important part of the aforementioned fighting attitude is to set fear aside and get determined about getting well.

Sixth, relish and embrace your faith. I kept a file of what I called “healing verses,” many of which had been forwarded through well-wishers. You can find them sprinkled everywhere in the Bible; Psalms and Proverbs are especially rich sources. Prayer is an amazing thing, and the healing power of prayer — something I always suspected before getting cancer — is palpable and real. You’ve seen the responses already on your site: These people are pulling for you, as are hundreds or even thousands who aren’t writing. There’s no greater honor than having somebody you don’t know asking God to help you. Somehow, the word trickles back, and it will make you stronger.”

When I first saw the clip of Tony leaving the White House I also lost it. What an incredible man he was. I’m wondering if there will be a televised memorial or funeral, if it is public.

I love that scene.

Well, on that note (since I just can't deal with Geraldo), I'm off to bed.

Hugs to all you wonderful Friends. We are so fortunate to have known Tony Snow...and it was a wonderful wake we gave today on this thread to honor him.

God Bless you all~~

Geraldo is going to talk about Tony later, but FIRST we have to have the mystery of the supermodel suicide, Jon Benet Ramsey, Drew Peterson, and Ashley the governor’s call girl.

I guess since he is only on once a week, he doesn’t want to waste any of his true crime stories on something like a tribute.

As I said, I am going to go get ready for bed. Flossing my teeth will be more interesting.

This is a tough thing for me right now. My husband is lying in the hospital recovering from surgery for his cancer. I had to turn off the TV while this was on, he was upset and I was trying to maintain.

Tony was a good smart decent man and while Heaven’s angels are rejoicing, the world has lost a wonderful influence for good.

I was so sad when I posted this news this morning. Now we've been comforted, inspired, made to laugh, cried, gathered together. Tony Snow would like that.

Tony Snow and his family attended an Episcopal Church in Alexandria. I suspect his funeral will be at an Episcopal Church - possibly the National Cathedral, since so many people would want to be there?

I noticed that, and wondered. Greta did not follow up on it.

I enjoyed Greta'a show for a change. I got the impression when Rush was on, that she might have cut him off a little too quickly.

I could not listen to all of bor's show. It was too much about him, as usual. When he kept cutting off Andrew Card, I wanted to reach in and tape his mmouth so Andrew could talk without being interupted.
