Rudd to have heart surgery

The Foreign Minister and former PM Kevin Rudd has reportedly announced in a speech at a Brisbane high school that he will need to undergo heart surgery next month. This should come as no surprise, as the type of heart valve surgery that Rudd has had in the past does not last forever, and typically needs to be re-done in later years.

It is interesting to speculate about the effect that a great amount of air travel, in pressurized cabins with variable air quality, might have had on the Foreign Minister who has apparently been living with a failing circulatory system.
