Isthmus contributor Rick Berg writes from his hospital bed, suggesting this synopsis of recent events in his life:
"Beloved local conservative Rick Berg has been hospitalized at Meriter Hospital for the past three weeks after an infection moved to his brain. Rick continues to make slow, steady progress on recovery, but expects it will be at least 2-3 more weeks before he may be allowed to return home.
"According to Rick, those working with him on his physical recovery say he is 'leaning to the left.' Rick says he doesn't want to go home until he is again 'leaning to the right.'"
Lean on, you crazy diamond.
