“Fear is a government’s greatest weapon. With it, they can convince a people that they need to abandon their freedom. In exchange, they get safety. Of course, you just trade one monster for another, but by the time the people realize this, it is too late.” --Victor Methos
If Alex is really sick, God bless him. If he isn’t, then God bless him twice for his deceiving ways. Either way, I am placing him in the medical celebrity program, with other recovery miracles Michael J Fox and Magic Johnson.
Interesting 9/11 code in this donation.
Holzhauer donated $1,109.14, which represents the birthday of his daughter Natasha, who made the card for Trebek.
On the donation website, Holzhauer wrote: “For Alex Trebek and all the other survivors.”
The Alex Trebeck story is smelling more and more like a Magic Johnson miracle, ie. medical celebrity program.
When Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer three months ago, fans were shocked. But now the beloved Trebek has good news to share: He’s in “near remission,” according to doctors.
Starting at 36:15, a good discussion on the Black Magic recovery of Magic Johnson, alleged AIDS carrier.
I call it the Medical Celebrity Program, and Magic Johnson is one of the biggest participants, as is Michael Fox.
but for some readers the subtext ofA Brief History of Timewas a human interest story about a genius who overcame his disability. Multiple reviews from the time touch on this. Hawking said in the Journal that it probably helped sales, but he signaled he was uneasy with such a reading.
Hawking and others have long joked that many people purchased his book because it made them look smart but never bothered to read it. “He agreed that the book, Brief History of Time, was probably the least-read, most-bought book ever,”
I think this video is recent. Not sure what’s more disturbing – watching Fox shake and roll or Jane Pauley’s facial expressions and annoying interviewing technique. Fox appears unshaven and disheveled.
Towards the end, Fox is among alleged Parkinson victims. As expected, he’s doing the most movement.
Like Stephen Hawking, Fox has outlasted most diagnosed patients.
I didn’t watch the Helen Keller movie, but I did see the movie Black. The possibility of getting through to such asensual people seems highly improbable, except for maybe in fantasy land. Is this story a fraud? Is this a medical celebrity story? Worth the question.
