No, I’m not talking about the notoriously fickle Minnesota weather, which at the moment is 84 degrees, muggy, and cloudy. I’m talking about the return of Tony Snow to the White House after weeks of cancer treatments:
White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, who will soon begin chemotherapy to fight a cancer recurrence, told fellow alumni at Davidson College that he feels great and plans to return to work Monday.
Snow, 51, has been on medical leave since announcing March 27 that a growth in his abdominal area was cancerous and had metastasized, or spread, to the liver.
“No, it doesn’t mean I’m going to be gray, shriveled and in the fetal position,” he told about 600 alumni and family members at a 30-year reunion Saturday. “To my classmates who think I’m going to lose my great hair, forget about it.”
Welcome back, Tony. Glad to have you at the podium again.
