Cancer's scorecard on the Australian publicity front took a walk into a neutral car spot reserved for people in blue boxes. One up and one down, not moving anywhere beyond the notes. An effective dead zone, where the bodies float on the craft of a fake Jamaican.
Before the mid morning Remembrance Day procedures were in full swing, news of the hospital deathsheets hit the wires.
Early to morning sunshine, despite the failed attempts of breast cancer to swing and knock out Belinda Emmett, it was the counterpart, bones, lingering long after the initial defeat, to finally claim one for the team. Not content with just the first and primary victim, Emmett's husband, Rove McManus opted to take time off from hosting his unvariety show. For the overall sum in that equation, a null effect.
Later on in the evening, the comeback starts up once again with Kylie Minogue's Showgirl Homecoming tour. A triumph on her part as the one time Allied Nations officer casts off the breast cancer that brought her over to the sidelines in the first incarnation of the tour.
Minogue's recovery from breast cancer effectively cancels out the Emmett win by bone. Truly a ponderous day for the chess team.
