I'm sure many Freepers have enjoyed reading posts by Common Tator. He's been a fixture on sites like FreeRepublic for years and always offers thoughtful and accurate insight on news and politics.

Common Tator has survived bouts with cancer in the past and beat huge odds before. But now he faces his largest challenge yet.

From Common Tator "Today I met with the doctor to hear the latest news. My cancer has spread to both lungs and my liver. It is also in at least 4 lympth nodes."

There is a blog set up for friends of Common Tator to post their support for him. If you have time tonight, please take the time to click on this link Comments for Commontator and leave a good word or two for him.

Oh my.

Dear God,<
Only you can turn sorrow into joy.
Now we ask for your intervention, for you to exercise your healing and saving power, for you to bring good out of evil.
We can only trust that your will is for our good and commend those for whom we worry to your care, believing as we do that in your plan all tears will be wiped away and all grief turned to merriment.

I never log on to FR without searching Ray’s user name to get the Tator take.

Thank you Ray for helping me to see past my own lazy prejudice on so many occasions. I can’t repay you but at least I can try to live up to your example.

God bless you Tator!

Wow! I recently asked him for his website so I could read his stuff regularly. I haven’t always agreed with him, but I’ve always found his opinion worth taking seriously.

And most of the time I’ve disagreed, I suspect I was the one who was wrong. Prayers indeed!

Common Tater (Ray): I will pray hard for healing for you. Thank you so much for all you have taught me about politics. I have learned so much from you, so many things that I just smacked myself on the forehead for and said ‘duh’ once I would read what you wrote, but I never would have known those things if it hadn’t been for you. Thanks for all the insider knowledge that you so generously shared with all of us. You are just about the best thing on FRee Republic. With years of love and gratitude from Irene Adler.
