After liver surgery, 39th President Jimmy Carter recently announced on Twitter he has been diagnosed with cancer. It's unclear exactly what type of cancer it is.
"Recent liver surgery revealed that I have cancer that now is in other parts of my body," Carter said in the statement released by the Carter Center. "I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare."
The statement makes clear that Carter's cancer is widely spread, but not where it originated, or even if that is known at this point. The liver is often a place where cancer spreads and less commonly is the primary source of it. It said further information will be provided when more facts are known, "possibly next week."
I wish President Carter and his family the best. It's a difficult journey ahead. It brings back way too recent memories of my mom's cancer, which began as stage one bile duct cancer diagnosed in 2014, and then spread to the liver by July of 2014.

Fed Judge Orders Kentucky Clerk to Issue Marriage License
One of those clerks that are refusing to issue legal marriage licenses to gay couples was ordered by a federal judge to knock it off and get to work...basically. This time it happened in Kentucky.
U.S. District Judge David Bunning said the couples should not be forced to travel to another county to get marriage licenses.
"Davis is certainly free to disagree with the court's opinion, as many Americans likely do, but that does not excuse her from complying with it," Bunning wrote. "To hold otherwise would set a dangerous precedent."
I just don't understand why they can't take their religions and keep them in church where they belong. Church and state do not mix. And if you can't keep them separate maybe working for the government might not be the job for you.

Straight Guys and Skimpy "Gay" Underwear
You can almost be certain this is just an advertorial for Christian Andrew underwear. It's a video of how alleged straight guys react to the complications of "gay" underwear. It really is about as dumb as dumb gets.
Here you go:
Gay underwear design can get a little confusing if you don’t know how the various straps and holes are meant to align on the body.
Good thing there are lots of pretty pictures to use as models while discerning front from back.
But how do straight guys feel about these sinfully suggestive undergarments?
Thank you again, Queerty.
Now let's hear it for the millions of gay men who wear the same underwear straight men wear...or for those of us who don't wear them unless we have a doctor's appointment.
So far, no one's even bothered to comment on this one.
