But Mostly Cancer

They're making a big deal about how Ron Wright (R-TX) died of Wu Ping Cough.

A couple places have mentioned he had lung cancer too.

I'm pretty certain that if he hadn't had lung cancer, he'd be alive.

Especially considering the Cadillac Rolls-Royce levels of healthcare members of Congress voted for themselves.

This is the entire point of mentioned the comorbidities!  Otherwise healthy people are, by and large, just going to have a bad case of the flu, get better and drive on.

By glossing over all the complications that let a bad case of the flu take someone down, we just sow panic.

But that was the point all along, wasn't it?
