Do you know the sound of thunder?

AS some loyal readers of this forum might know, we have a full blown conspiracy theory on celebrities dying from pancreatic cancer at a much higher rate then "normals" do.

That theory wasn't hurt a bit today as Alex Trebek announced to the world that he has stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  While he is putting on a brave face, this type of cancer is infamous for it's swift lethality.

As a casual fan of his show, I wish him the best and hope he beats the odds.

If you ignore a problem it goes away, right?

As I heard that, that's where my mind went.  Surely this is a man who would have gotten regular check-ups right? A man of his advancing years, especially in light of the fact that so many have passed away from pancreatic cancer, one wonders how it would have gotten to stage 4 without anyone noticing?

As someone who has dealt with a loved one battling cancer, he could have gotten the diagnosis earlier and kept a lid on it with the hopes that treatment would be effective. Sadly, in Trebek's case, the treatments didn't work and the disease advanced to what it is today. My heart goes out to him and his loved ones. Cancer sucks.
