They Don’t Look Too Good, Ei­ther

60-ish suit in Cubs jack­et on cell: I’m on the bus right now. I’m go­ing to the Cubs game. Well, I just left Dad, and I got­ta say, it does­n’t look too good. They’re feed­ing him through a stom­ach tube and they’ve got him on a drip. You know, he had that quadru­ple by­pass a cou­ple of years ago and he’s got di­a­betes now… He’s been un­con­scious most of the time when I vis­it him, and… Yeah, well, don’t wish me good luck. The Cub­bies are the ones who need it!
