THE LEADING EDGE by Phillip E. Johnson
As I write this installment of “The Leading Edge” just before Thanksgiving Day of 2006, I have many things to be thankful for. For one thing, I am making splendid progress in coming back from a second major stroke. Far from being confined to a wheel chair, I am walking at least a mile every morning when the weather permits, and working out regularly at a local gym.
Of course, a third stroke might finish me off at any time, but two strokes have made me very health-conscious, with the result that my weight and blood pressure are both down, and I am confident that my new self-discipline is a surer protection against arterial clogging than the carotid surgery I relied upon after the first . . .
