TTAG’s Managing Editor Dan Zimmerman has been felled by a kidney stone so big his doctor mistook it for a glacial erratic. Dan’s wife and agent provocateur [not shown] reports that our highest (not to mention only) paid employee is resting comfortably, drifting in and out of consciousness whilst riding the dragon. We await the Obamacare Death Panel’s final verdict. Meanwhile, please join me in wishing the most sarcastic writer in the universe a speedy recovery. [NB: if a Rhode Island girl can claim universal sex appeal, Dan can take inter-Galactic snark honors.] Even in his drug-addled haze Dan the man’s plan is to recover in time to make the SHOT show. Whadda guy. Take you time Dan. Rest well. Make it happen.
