Legendary rocker Ron Wood had a major scare recently. The 68-year-old guitarist of the Rolling Stones thought that he might pay the ultimate price for 50 years of chain smoking. A cancerous legion was discovered on his left lung during a routine checkup earlier this year. There was a chance that the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes. The tests took a week to come back. Wood and his wife said they went through hell during those seven days. The rocker said that he had prepared himself mentally to hear bad news from his doctor. The couple decided not to tell anyone about Wood’s health situation until they knew for sure what the situation was. They did not want anyone to get worried unnecessarily.

The New York times reports that Eduardo del Río, a self-taught caricaturist who was known for speaking against corruption, died this past Tuesday from prostate cancer complications at the age of 83.
Mr. del Río was born on June 20, 1934 in Zamora, which was “an epicenter of conservative Roman Catholicism in southwestern Mexico.” Shortly after he was born, his father died after gambling away the money the family had left. Afterwards, his mother moved with him and his brother to Mexico City, where Eduardo secretly devoured comics and classic literature, along with finishing his secondary education at a Salesian seminary. Eduardo floated between jobs until he settled on a job answering phones for a funeral home, where he had all of the time in the world to doodle. After a mourner who knew the Ja Ja editor noticed his doodles, he was quickly recruited by the humor magazine.
Eduardo founded Popular Insurgency, the Mexican Worker Party’s magazine, and changed his surname to Rius in the event his work was seen as too caustic. In 1969, he was kidnapped because of his work and was only freed when “the soldiers learned that he was related to a former Mexican president”. Years later, Mr. del Río published “The Manual of the Perfect Athiest”, which resulted in his excommunication from the Church. In response, he told La Jornada “I have to thank God, who made me an atheist and the Catholic Church, which made me anticlerical.”
His work has been praised by many people, including political scientist Andrew Hacker, who called “Marx for Beginners” a “superb little book”; and the author Carlos Monsiváis, who once said “there were three major departments of education in Mexico: the Ministry of Public Education, the multimedia conglomerate Televisa, and Rius.”
Mr. del Río is survived by his wife, Micaela Flores, and his daughter, Citlali del Río Flores.
