Ariel Sharon Improved After Further Surgery
FOXNews.com – U.S. & World – Sharon’s Emergency Surgery Ends
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has stabilized after another emergency surgery to correct hemorrhaging in his brain.

“FOX News has learned that after Sharon’s massive stroke and brain hemorrhage, doctors were ready to pronounce the Israeli leader dead, but were dissuaded from doing so by family and close associates. They promised to do everything they could to save Sharon’s life.”

Good thing he wasn’t “little people”, or one of the ordinary elderly, and that his insurance hadn’t run out.

The Interstate Highway 10 causeway over Lake Pontchartrain, virtually destroyed by hurricane Katrina, has been successfully repaired and reopened. I posted pictures earlier of the damaged causeway shortly after the storm.
