    Former US. Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, had an angioplasty procedure earlier this week and is now resting at home. He has experienced heart trouble for several years since suffering a heart attack in October 2000 and undergoing a bypass operation the following year.

    F.W. De Klerk

    Former South African President, F.W. De Klerk is in hospital. The 70 year old has a history of being a heavy smoker and drinker and is suffering from colon cancer. His condition had worsened on Wednesday, after having surgery, but he is now in a stable condition. He is definitely one to keep an eye on.

This has forced the cancellation of his Broadway play "On Golden Pond". Could this be a sign that he may be about to croak one last time? Darth Vader star too ill for play

    September 11th

    Today is the 4th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre in New York City and the Pentagon Building in Washington, DC. Approximately 3000 people lost their lives on that fateful day. The victims came from all races, religions, classes and political persuasions. What I remember was that I was in the United States on that day and even though I was not in New York City, it still affected me deeply. It also seems to have had a profound effect on the justice system and the way of life in the Western world.

    Johnny Carson Rip

    Johnny Carson has been battling emphysema for the last couple of years and has already had quadruple-bypass heart surgery. He could be a strong candidate for 2005. Who will ever forget his famous line - "Heeere's Johnny!"

Corden died of emphysema on Thursday night in Los Angeles, his longtime agent Don Pitts said. Corden's wife of nine years, Angelina, was with him at the time. Henry Cordin dies

    Nelson Mandela

    I have to agree. From some the news sources I have read, given his age and the critical condition he is in, his prospects are not very good.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    Recently I read the book "Currency Wars: The making of the next global crises" by James Rickards. It was a great read and it does go into great detail of how currencies are manipulated.
