Mikhail Gorbachev is 75 today - does anyone have an info on his health?

And what about Boris Yeltsin - definitely pickled but is he still alive?
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

Yeltsin has check-up at German heart clinic
12:22 | 02/ 03/ 2006



BERLIN, March 2 (RIA Novosti, Olga Semenova) - Former Russian leader Boris Yeltsin has had a check-up at a German heart center, the clinic said Thursday.

"Yeltsin comes in for a check-up with Professor Roland Hetzer every year, following the 1996 operation on his aorta," a clinic representative said. He added that the results could not be disclosed, citing professional ethics.

"For his age, and taking into account his heart's workload, Yeltsin looks good. You should ask him how he feels, though."

Health problems dogged Yelstin throughout his second term in office, and he underwent major heart surgery in 1996. The former president celebrated his 75 birthday in February.

Not entirely sure what that means but I think he's trying to say the man's a wreck.

Gorby's had a few worries, largely down to being depressed when his wife offed this mortal coil sometime ago. Reckon he'll outlast Yeltsin though, another victory for open minded and progressive ideas over the limited dogma old style Soviet thinking.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

BB, any chance you'd show us this 'proof' of Yeltsin's being really healthy?

Maybe this thread should be merged with the existing Yeltsin one,

Or change the title of the thread to make it just about Gorbachev.

Bringing back an ancient thread once started by me,

The vanishing of Boris Yeltzin from the list seemed to be the proper move since he
had recovered greatly. Although the list Tempus Fugit posted concerning his health problems
looked almost like something that would be put on Saterday Night Live. Never thought a single
person could have so many health issues besides Pope John Paul.

Well now that his troubles are running back to him he may be a winner for the 2006 list.

Coincedently i've always felt the same way.

Anyone is worth watching if we are to rely on vaugeries such as that. Before you start your watch, I suggest you get some more concrete sources/information before you possibly waste your time.
