I am a Cancer survivor, (at least for now); I volunteered for three tours (one Basic year and two extensions) for 2 Years, 2 Months, and 18 days in Viet Nam (out of a total of 2 Years, 11 Months and 29 Days in the Army; I am Catholic; I have 4 children; and I am married 35 years to the same woman.

I just visited the President Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley on July 29, 2006. I didn't think it was possible for that man to grow in stature in my eyes, but after visiting the library, he is an immense figure.

When you remove all of the romance and PR, the two greatest Presidents in my lifetime were Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan.

All of the above may be fodder for some Psychologist, it has been tried with no consistent findings. My cancer has just returned and in a treatment a couple of weeks ago I had a violent reaction to one of my drugs and went into anaphylactic Shock. My blood pressure had dropped to 50/48 and my air canal had closed up almost completely. It seems that that upset everyone else more than it bothered me. two hours after I left the Clinic, I walked back into the office and picked up my stuff and went home. The next day I went to work and out in 12 hours. Again my Psychological fodder for someone to do a paper.
