I have been advised by my physician that I must undergo a course of chemotherapy on my esophagus. This advice seems persuasive to me. I regret having had to cancel so many engagements at such short notice.
I’m sure I speak for many when I say that we love you, we’ll be thinking about you, and we’ll be hoping for the full, painless as possible, recovery you deserve. In the meantime, but hopefully not for long, we will miss your wit, your insight, and your passion. But, most of all, we will miss your unquietable conscience on behalf of Enlightenment political and intellectual values in the public square. Get well soon as possible.
