Dear Pickering Posters,

As you all know, Larry is old school. The last thing he wants to do is to burden you all with his medical problems. However, since some of you have indicated a heartfelt concern for his welfare, he has asked me to give you all a quick update.

He has thankfully finished his radiation therapy. It has gone well as far as we can tell, however, it has of course knocked him around. He is bearing up well and continues to defy any pessimism on behalf of the medical profession. He is hoping to be back on board in a couple of weeks and thanks you all for your patience.

One positive aspect of the situation is that since his radiation therapy, he now finds that when he gets up in the night to use the bathroom, he doesn’t need to turn the lights on.
