Just read an article that Benny Parsons (former NASCAR driver & current broadcast analyst for those of you unfamiliar with him) is in the intensive care unit in a NC hospital. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in '06 and is now apparently cancer free, but the chemo and radiation completely destroyed one of his lungs. Given that he is in the hospital in ICU, I sure hope that is not a sign of sad things to come. I've never met Benny, but I've always enjoyed his TV coverage and he seems like a genuinely good person. I'm just wishing him and his family all the best in the days to come.
