Error on Previous Post on Celebrity Health

On my previous posting about the recent disability of Senator Tim Johnson, I mistakenly stated that the 25th Amendment was passed after the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan in 1981. In fact, it was passed following the death of John F. Kennedy. However, it was the aftermath of Reagan's ordeal that led to productive public discussion of the proper uses of the amendment. Subsequently, both Reagan and George W. Bush have invoked it, temporarily transferring power to their vice presidents, during surgical procedures. Meanwhile,
Senator Johnson is said to be improving, but the actual extent of his disability remains unclear.
