So, I guess we've established that he either has, or doesn't have, prostate cancer. Gee, I'm glad that's all cleared up.
In any case, we've been told by Sir McKellen that it's a disease that is "totally treatable," and that even though a lot of men die from it, that's only because they didn't know they had it and so it went on a "rampage." Thank God. Now that we've all been treated, I guess we never have to worry about it "going on a rampage" or that we'll die from it.
Really, all you have to do is have it "zapped" or have it "snipped" and you'll be right as rain!!!!
Thanks, your Lordship, or whatever the appropriate appellation might be, for trivializing a disease that will kill 30,000 men this year. And I'll bet a lot of them were snipped and zapped and still are losing their lives.
