Capitol Hill Blue founder, publisher and editor Doug Thompson — aka The Rant — was diagnosed with pneumonia two weeks ago and is currently recovering at his home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia.

His column will return on Monday, Dec. 1.


  1. Happy Thankgiving to our host Doug Thompson and to all our friends and associates that post to his fine site.

    Doug, it’s my hope that you are on the final step to recovery. If possible, let us know how you are doing.

  2. Get well soon, big guy!

    By the way, trying taking huge doses of Vitamin D, especially in the form of cod liver oil. Your Gramma was right!

  3. Rest, rest, and rest some more.. then return when you are well recovered. We’ll miss you while you’re gone, but hope you stay down until you are truly WELL.

    Sit on him, Amy, and make sure he takes the time to get well. Hang in there.
