Days after Bernie suffers a heart attack, his forty-six year old daughter-in-law suddenly dies of cancer. I am exhausted after one day of travel and teaching that pales in comparison to what he, and others, have been doing for months in pursuit of the Democratic Party nomination. There is really nothing to say save that I hope he can survive these blows. Today Bernie announced that he would be cutting back on the pace of his campaigning.
It is mean-spirited and beneath me to say that I hope Trump suffers comparable blows, but there it is. Nobody ever accused me of being a nice guy.
