Marion Barry Released From the Hospital

Marion Barry is back in action. After being laid up in Howard University Hospital for 16 days, the 77-year-old mayor-for-life was released, according to spokeswoman LaToya Foster.

Barry went to the hospital on Jan. 11 to be treated for a "blood infection," according to a note read on his behalf at the Ward 8 Democrats straw poll. The hospitalization was the latest health problem for Barry, who told LL earlier this month that his diabetes has given him problems using his legs.

    Hope Mr. Barry recovers. 16 days in the hospital is SLOW time.

    YOU CAN'T KEEP A GOOD MAN DOWN!!

    In spite of the odds of such tremendous success from the beginning at his humble birth to his mid-life crises and now, to his late life challenges, Marion Shepelo Barry continues to rise. He is the ultimate survivor. God has always been and always will be with him.

    DOMINUS VOBISCUM, Mr. MAYOR FOR LIFE: GOD BE WITH YOU.

    We honor you, we love you, and we continue to pray for your well-being. You are a giant among men. Human, but just like the rest of us, not without our challenges.
