Regarding cancer being cured...all the latest data and research points to yes it will and as a previous posted point it, the treatment will be tailored to the individual patient. Work is already being done in this field and there have been some very important breakthroughs. We aren't there yet but we are a lot closer today than we were yesterday. There's every reason to be optimistic it will happen and practically no reason not to be.

Regarding the passing of Steve Jobs... His impact and influence on society can be seen around the world, there's no denying that. Like him or not, like Apple or not, it's unfortunate when a person has to suffer the way he did. I don't believe in heaven but I do believe he is still around in one form or another, and free of his broken down container of a body. RIP Steve Jobs.

Regarding anything with anything negative to say right now... grow up and learn some decency. It's not about censorship, it's about being a mature adult... Be one.
