Neuhaus is Ill

Richard John Neuhaus, easily the most frustrating public intellectual in the Egg's world, is gravely ill.  An update on the site of his magazine, First Things, says that he has a serious form of cancer, currently complicated by a systemic infection, and that he has been hospitalized.

He is not able to receive visitors, and has asked for no flowers or gifts -- only prayers for a quick recovery.  We offer those prayers, and ask that our readers do as well.  He is an easy target, and we hope to continue throwing darts at him for years to come.
