Hi, On Point listeners, who I very much like to think of as friends…

Medical news here. Not bad, but it’s going to take me off-air for a little while. Next week I’m headed in for vascular surgery to fix a problem that my 85-year-old dad has had and his mother before him had as well. All in the family! It’s not the heart. I took care of that ten years ago. It’s a repair the doctors say I need. They say the fix is straightforward and very long-lasting. So I’m stepping up to take care of it. I’ll be out for the rest of May, and maybe a bit beyond. Then right back to exploring with you these incredible times we live in.  Stay tuned to On Point. My terrific producers will be here, working their magic for you every day. And before you know it, I’ll be back in the saddle, on the air. Thanks for your patience and care. I’ll be back with you soon! — Tom
