DrHGuy Is Taking A Day (Or 2) Off


Things have been, as readers may have noticed, a tad hectic in Cohen World the past month, what with 80th birthday commemorations and a new album being released. (BTW, Leonard, don’t even think about pulling this same stunt on your 90th birthday.) Consequently, DrHGuy is going on R&R to recover his sardonic zing.

DrHGuy On Family Leave


DrHGuy & the Duchess are overseeing the convalescence of their son, the Prodigal, whose gallbladder was excised yesterday afternoon at Duke University Hospital (see photo of his gallbladder in situ). Prodigal, aka Sam, appears to be thriving post-cholecystectomy, but the Duchess has implemented a care plan calling for PRN doses of extra attention, repeated applications of comfort foods, and a regime of video games interspersed with movies. Consequently, posting will be sparse or altogether absent for the next two or three days. & Are On Hiatus
