Political Leaning
Today it was announced that former Vice President Dick Cheney has received a left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The device apparently is intended to serve as a "bridge to transplant," which means that it is meant to support his heart temporarily while he awaits heart transplantation.

An LVAD is a surgically implanted, battery driven pump, designed to augment the pumping action of a heart that that has become too weak from heart failure to function effectively.

Hmmm interesting I wonder if I might be getting one of these? It is amazing what we can do with hearts these days. And open heart surgery is not even that old getting its start in WWII.
