Prayers and best wishes to Les and his wife as they deal with a stem-cell transplant and chemotherapy.
UPDATE: A reader adds this about Les:
Every year around Christmas Les would buy pizza for the entire newsroom, pretty much whoever worked that evening. He'd give me a bunch of cash plus tip for the delivery guy. People always asked who paid for it, but it was always mums the word. He didn't want anyone else to know. That's just the type of guy he is..
