News of My Demise Updated

Health updates are always tedious, especially, in my case, when one is the patient.  This should be my last report.  Yesterday, I reported for X-rays and examination at the office of my thoracic surgeon.  They pronounced me in remarkably good condition.  The lungs were now clear or fluid and operating to full capacity.  The heart is strong, and the systolic blood pressure (the upper number) is over 20 points lower.  I am cleared for travel to South Carolina, where I shall be doing a lecture at the Abbeville Institute conference on Who Owns America?

    Great news, Dr. Fleming! I note that your recovery, oddly enough, has run in parallel with Navalny’s.

    Cocktails at 5pm (More or less) on Friday in North Charleston? The Crowne? I will see about Jack T’s whereabouts.

    Good idea. I don’t think there is either food or drink planned by the conference. There’s the hotel and a few places where Garret used to have contacts, but Jack probably has a better idea. North Charleston used to be a culinary wasteland. As we used to say, “The North begins in North Charleston” which in those days was all “dark Satanic mills” and the lethal stenches of fertilizer plants and paper mills. They’ve actually revived the old downtown into a pleasant few blocks, where EVO Pizza is located.
