Good TV prog coming on this week courtesy of Auntie Beeb with respect to TP and Alzheimers; a bit sad, really to see a man of such wit struggling not to succumb to this vile disease.....

Is it bad that my first feeling when I heard he had alzeimer's was annoyance in the 'damn, fewer discworld novels' sense?

Obviously, sympathy followed, but the annoyance is still there.

OTOH, part of me thinks that he might appreciate that sentiment!
