    on migraines last year.  That is my son's fake illness.  In high school, if a kid is two minutes late, he needs a medical excuse from a parent.  Two minutes.  I told him, OK, you have migraines.  Either that or chronic diarrhea.  

    I am very prone to headaches, sinus types.  I have had some bad ones but I can't talk in your company.  And, now you can't be president!

    I hate to quote David Frum here but this may be more apropos, coming from him, "Yes the American media always loves a freak show. But a political party does not have to cooperate."

      don't even want have a supervisory position - too much stress.  I stay a lowly data entry person and only have the occasional migraine.  :)

        illness comment.  I hated it.  Why couldn't I just say "lost his socks"?  But, thems aren't the rules ...
