Pete Stark is back in the hospital

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Fremont, had a bout with pneumonia earlier this year, and although he went back to work after that, he still had a rather deep cough when I saw him earlier this month. Acting on a tip given to a colleague, I asked his office about his health today, and got a response from the horse’s mouth:

Your tip was right. I’m back in the hospital to see if they can find an antibiotic that will accelerate my recovery from pneumonia. I’m impatient being a patient and want out! Docs and nurses think I’m faking and only trying to get an insider’s view of medicine for reform. Video camera is rolling — next Michael Moore here.

Be well,

    Be cautious. Ol’ Pete may have contracted Mexican swine ‘flu’. He should be quarantined.

  • Arne Simonsen

    Ol’ Pete should have been ‘quarantined’ long ago.
