“So, life gave me the old kick in the balls today. I’ll have to move back to Europe next week to have my heart taken care of.

I’ve had long bouts of irregular heartbeats for the last six weeks, plus that stay in the ICU, a resting hear rate of 140 for long stretches of time and there are some structural issues, too.

If anybody has a spare heart, I’m in the market.” — Klaus Marre, formerly of The Hill and The Daily Caller.
