It is my pleasure to inform the teeming millions of the followers of LRA&H that just this last Tuesday, our own Mr. Green visited his oncologist for his 5 year check-up and was officially declared cancer free. At this time I should like to add, on their behalf, the voices of his friends here at Luna City to the multitude of those now rejoicing in his good fortune back on Earth.
And if I may, a personal note. I've always considered the character of a man, when confronted by great challenges, to be more a matter of conduct than of outcome. Men are not considered great because they survive these trials, but for their examples of courage and dignity which strengthen all of us when we ourselves are called upon to confront the same challenges.
To my mind, the result of the test he reviewed last Tuesday was far less important than that of a more crucial test he had already passed. Steve, its good to have you with us.
But don't for a second think you can use this experience to gain a single grain of my favor as a referee in your endless quarrels with Mr. Rhetts. En garde, Mr. Green. And sharply!
