Race to the White House: Cheney Hospitalized for Chest Pains
The news broke this morning that Vice Presidential candidate Dick Cheney complained of chest pains and was rushed to George Washington University Hospital. After several tests, however, his physicians assured him and the rest of the world that he did not suffer a heart attack.
Governor George W. Bush knew of Cheney's history of heart problems when he selected him as his running mate. This included three heart attacks and a quadruple cardiac bypass surgery - all before Cheney had turned 50 years old.
A cardiologist at the hospital commented during the campaign that Cheney's health was stable.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
