Old Soldiers

General MacArthur’s famous quote “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away” seems to be sadly descriptive of what is currently happening to General Ariel Sharon.  

Some lesser mortals might have died quickly as a result of a cardiac problem or suchlike, but ironically, Mr Sharon’s greatest asset - his brain, is being destroyed not from without, but from within.

If he is to die, let us pray this comes soon and he is spared any further suffering.
A man of his rare ability really shouldn’t leave the world in such a cruel and drawn-out manner.
