George H.W. Bush’s aide, Jean Becker • Offering a fairly snarky-sounding response to the outpouring of concern that the former president received after reports that he was admitted to an intensive care unit. According to Becker’s email to Bush’s family and friends, here’s what happened: “He is 88 years old, he had a terrible case of bronchitis which then triggered a series of complications, partially brought on by the fact that he also has a form of Parkinson’s disease.” Becker said in the message that if Bush were writing, he “would ask me to tell you to please put the harps back in the closet.” So in other words, thanks for your concern, but the 88-year-old former president will be OK for now. source
