For those not Canadian enough, lead singer of Tragically Hip, Gord Downie, has terminal brain cancer.

The band's our version of the Rolling Stones, REM, and Springteen rolled into one.

So word to the wise, don't be pissing off any of the Canadians right now. Any and all the alcohol is welcome.

Yup, all the stuff we have in the world and we still have this around.

It's weird that even with all the amazing mutant powers and magic and super geniuses out there, there still isn't a cure for cancer. It's almost like it's not profitable for scientists to invest in.

From the magic side of things, people have tried, but cancer tends to be like some kind of noxious weed - you cure one type, and it pops up again somewhere else. You basically drain yourself - and any power source - clean empty trying to catch it all.

You'd think with the powers we have, something could be done. But sometimes you can't outwit nature. Doesn't mean it doesn't suck.

Alright as I can be for not knowing the guy personally.

Need to get you your belated birthday present at some point.

The door to Harry's, and my tab (for a short while, I've seen you drink), are open if you'd like to join me tonight. I am sorry, this kind of news is always gutting.

Thanks for the bar tab. At least it tastes good even if it doesn't do anything.
