I was sad to read the news:
"Harmon Killebrew announced Friday that he no longer plans to fight his esophageal cancer and has settled in for the final days of his life, saddening friends and fans of the 74-year-old Hall of Fame slugger."
But sadder to read the Yahoo link for it: "Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew gives up fight against cancer."
He's not giving up - he is planning to maximize the quality of his life under hospice care. Each additional day he's alive, the score is +1 for him, 0 for cancer.
(I also posted this on the HNC board.)
