      Very ironic, since he has hosted fund raisers (and personally contributed) for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to the tune of 15 million dollars over the years. From the web: "Limbaugh holds an annual fundraising telethon called the "EIB Cure-a-Thon"[194] for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.[195] In 2006, the EIB Cure-a-Thon conducted its 16th annual telethon, raising $1.7 million,[196] totaling over $15 million since the first cure-a-thon."

      Smoking has claimed so many we know - including my dad.

      po18guy, anyone can get lung cancer. 20% of smokers develop lung cancer. Only 20%.

      An earlier quote by him referring to smoking:
      "That is a myth. That has been disproven at the World Health Organization and the report was suppressed. There is no fatality whatsoever. There's no even major sickness component associated with secondhand smoke. It may irritate you, and you may not like it, but it will not make you sick, and it will not kill you...Firsthand smoke takes 50 years to kill people, if it does. Not everybody that smokes gets cancer. Now, it's true that everybody who smokes dies, but so does everyone who eats carrots ... I would like a medal for smoking cigars, is what I'm saying."
