Chicago Sun-Times political columnist Robert Novak has announced his immediate retirement following the diagnosis of a brain tumor, the newspaper reported on its Web site Monday.
It said Novak described his prognosis as “dire.”
“The details are being worked out with the doctors this week, but the tentative plan is for radiation and chemotherapy,” the newspaper quoted Novak.
We can only pray that everything works out with his health. His retirement is a loss to the political community and the country. As a journalist, he held all to the same standards of scrutiny and as a editorialist, he was a strong, yet fair, conservative.
