My wife Liz and I knew nothing about horse racing at the time, but in our minds, we thought, why not? We soon learned that the owners had undersold the ability of the horse, he was more than "pretty good."
Someone that I love dearly and respect greatly was diagnosed with lung cancer. When I talk to people about it, their first response is usually... "I didn't know he smoked." It's a good opportunity to educate people, but I am sure it gets old for non-smoking lung cancer patients.
