Glen Campbell Diagnosed with Alzheimer's

I heard on the radio today that country musician Glen Campbell has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

For those of us who may remember him from the 1960's and '70's, it is hard to believe that Campbell is now 75 years old.  He was diagnosed 6 months ago and is undertaking his farewell tour this summer.  His wife, Kim wanted people to know of his diagnosis lest they think he had lost his long time addiction battle with alcohol.

His final album, Ghost on the Canvas, is due out on August 30th.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
