Fox News Pundit Charles Krauthammer Dead At 68
The conservative Washington Post columnist and Fox News pundit had cancer.
By Lydia O’Connor, 06/21/2018 06:10 pm ET

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Charles Krauthammer has died, The Washington Post confirmed Thursday. He was 68.

The announcement came nearly two weeks after the columnist and Fox News personality revealed in a Washington Post column that he only had weeks left to live. For most of the last year, he wrote, he’d been recovering from surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his abdomen. Though the procedure was initially thought to be successful, the cancer returned and began spreading rapidly.

“This is the final verdict,” he wrote. “My fight is over.”

I was impressed with Krauthhammers intellect... his wit.. his sense of humor. Like many I was unaware of his physical handicap initially, but when I found out it made his performance even more impressive, if anything. And having learned that he was almost totally paralyzed, I was further impressed with the fact that he strived to do so much himself, rather than rely on assistants. He even drove himself from place to place. :)

Having said all that... I think he "lost the plot" somewhat when it came to TRUMP... which put me off him a bit from the time of the Primary campaigns and run for President. Still..... even though I disagree with him on Trump I still found his opinions on most things to be well argued.

Sad to see him go :(

Doris Day, the Academy Award-winning singer of "Que Será, Será" and a Golden Age of Hollywood movie icon, died on Monday at 97 from complications of pneumonia, according to her foundation. Day had an enormously popular entertainment career, and is one of the top ranked female box-office stars of all time.

She also hosted the CBS sitcom "The Doris Day Show" from 1968-1973. Day was an accomplished singer, winning a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a Legend Award from the Society of Singers. She recorded dozens of albums and saw numerous singles reach Top-10 status, most notably her breakout 1947 hit "Sentimental Journey." Her gift for song translated onto the big screen, as she performed Academy Award-winning songs "Secret Love" in 1953 and "Que Será, Será" in 1956.
