    For those who are fans of CIA thriller novels, one of the better authors passed away early this morning.

    Vince Flynn, whose primary character was Mitch Rapp, passed away early this morning from the effects of advanced prostate cancer. He was 47 years old.

    He had written seventeen novels, most of which followed the exploits of Mitch Rapp, a CIA operative.

    RIP, Vince.

    Best, Dennis

    My son is a BIG fan. Vince signed and wrote a message to him that he treasures. A good man and too short a life.

    Gentlemen let this be a heads up to get your prostrate check up every year after you turn 40 or sooner if you have a family history.

    bigdog,

    Some how, a "heads up" on a prostate exam just has a poor ring to it. Butt, I understand.
