I'll take medical emergencies for $1000? Gee, that's really clever. How about "I'll take jerks who make flippant remarks about other people's troubles for $0," because that's what your commentary is worth.

Alex, take care, do what the doctor says and come back soon.

Single handedly you have fought the good fight against the dumbing down of America. Keep up the good work! We watch Jeopardy every night and sometimes even know the "questions"!

We'll be thinking of you and your family.
