    He has mesothelioma.

    Dick Enberg and Merlin Olsen were the 4-7 p.m. soundtrack of my Sundays in the 1980s
  2. Maybe God cursed him for starring in Fr. Murphy.

    My grandmother died of mesothelioma. He'll be dead in a year, sadly.

    Sad news, and I have a feeling the networks will just stall the lawsuit until he dies.

    I enjoyed his broadcasts, and his acting on Little House on the Prairie.

    Maybe somebody should send him an FTD Pick-Me-Up Bouquet.
