Michael Douglas and his brave yet realistic outlook
When Mr. Douglas made the statement that his cancer was stage four my eyes became misty. I know what stage four means and Letterman had to know. Not too long ago my love was diagnosed with cancer stage one, and I became a marshmallow. My world is looking good, but I mist up for Michael and anyone else who is plunged overnight into the nightmare that is cancer. It is a world we all know about, but in fact really know nothing about until it strikes. Bless Mr. Douglas and his bravery for being able to sit there and report the worst. I don't know how people do it, I certainly can't, but I am the worst example and Mr. Douglas is the best.
