Cheney’s continuing heart problems: When the heart acts, the body is its slave

Filed in Current affairs, Politics by on January 7, 2011 0 Comments

Karma or God’s punishment? The appearance of Dick Cheney, former US vice president, is changing. He is skinnier and carrying a heart pump with him. He has a history of heart problems.

Not to laugh at the suffering of one of the most hated US politicians, but things seem to keep going wrong for Dick Cheney. Just last month, Nigeria charged Mr. Cheney over a bribery case.

Carrying a heart pump suggests that he needs a heart transplant. It is unclear if he needs a new heart or not. Will a new heart make him a better person?

Clearly former vice-president Cheney’s weight loss suggests a serious health issue. As the Zulu of South Africa say, “When the heart acts, the body is its slave.”
