Tony Snow, Dr. DeBakey RIP

I'm not fan of the Bush admin, but I hate cancer even more. Tony Snow was far too young to die, and he fought cancer more than once. May he rest in peace.

Dr. Michael DeBakey, who died aged 99, was the preeminent master of modern heart disease treatment. He created everything from a main component of the heart-lung machine, to the commonplace operations to repair the aorta. He invented many surgical instruments and other medical devices. His contribution to the profession of medicine is profound; he treated presidents, royalty, celebrities and everyday people as well as those with no means. Thank you Dr. DeBakey for your contributions to humanity and may you rest in a well-earned peace.
