If it is true, it’s sad. If it’s not, it’s sick. Either way, Ford is written out of the script – another 0;man for the people” taken away in a too early, nasty fashion. It’s a message to all future pols who want to challenge the system that it’s dangerous, and a message to the people that you can’t have a leader who is intent on changing the status quo.

I posted my thoughts here, but let me add that the meme that he died, posted in the social media, circulated a few days ago. It was soon described as a hoax by his family.

Who would have put this meme out? The hoaxsters of this possibly themselves? Of course – it simply acts as a google search sponge to absorb all those that search for “”.

Rob Ford, the Toronto city councillor who became the world’s most famous mayor during a wild, scandal-filled term, is dead at age 46.The married father of two young children died after 18 months of treatment for a rare and aggressive cancer first diagnosed in the midst of his 2014 bid to be re-elected mayor. Ford would have turned 47 on May 28.

Zach does the – and note I don’t agree at all that he was killed by anyone. I still believe some of the numerology is correct.

    With David Bowie’s high profile ‘Cancer death’ in January there was some conjecture that I wasn’t comfortable with.
    People were looking at photographs taken of Bowie from a month previously and saying ”He looks well enough”.

    I worked on a palliative care cancer ward for a year in 2009 and I encountered people who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, on a daily basis.
    I witnessed people undergoing various treatment – including chemotherapy – and then dying, multiple times.

    I’m no oncologist, but It’s my impression that there’s no hard and fast rule with cancer deaths as to exactly how someone , who is ailing and undergoing treatment, should look.
    People react differently to various forms of chemotherapy, for example, and sometimes show no particular outward signs of their treatment.

    Over weight people can die from so-called ‘cancer’; people who look and seem perfectly healthy can just pass away in the night. In the real world, it happens.

    In the real world, people die in different ways all the time.

    Sometimes people hang on to life for weeks. Effectively comatose – under heavy medication- their end is inevitable but it just doesn’t come. The monitor keeps ticking for weeks and the daily visits from relatives tail-off, before the final blessed release.

    If the will is there, in this day and age, I believe it is possible, quite often, to keep someone ‘legally’ alive for a long time. They may have no quality of life, but they’re not actually dead.

    It would seem fairly easy to control the actual death of someone, at times.
    It becomes a case of when to ‘let them go’.

    At the apparent end of Nelson Mandella’s life there were ‘ premature’ reports, as with Ford, of Mandella’s end and it occurred to me that it was probably a case of a real-ailing-man passing with a brief perhaps, to ‘keep him alive ’til next Tuesday for the media schedule’.

    I draw no conclusions here. This Ford is not familiar to me.
    I just wanted to express my caution and ( ‘humble’ i was tea boy ) perspective, when looking at these cases in view of the daily and sad reality of ailing people dying from that broad term, cancer.
