Years ago, while I was working at WPXI in Pittsburgh, I came down with the Shingles. It was very painful and I missed a few days of work. To battle the pain I took a couple of aspirin.
ESPN's Keith Olbermann has also been off the air while battling the Shingles and he has missed much more than a few days. Olby is blaming the drugs that Doctors are giving him for the Shingles pain.
He claims the pain killing drugs make him a "danger to humanity."
