Peter Jennings Diagnosed with Lung Cancer

Just heard that Jennings will start chemo for lung cancer. Very bad news. My mother died of lung cancer. Am I behind the times and now people recover easily from lung cancer. My sense was that it's very serious and most likely fatal. My mom was diagnosed September 1st of 1997, gone on September 26th three weeks later.

I'm at CBS News in NYC with my friend who's a news producer here. I'm watching the news scroll across her aggregator. Interesting software.
