Update: Beau Biden is making progress after stroke, officials say

Beau Biden is continuing to make progress in his recovery from a mild stroke, Delaware state officials said Wednesday afternoon.

Joe and Jill Biden were in Philadelphia Wednesday to be with the vice president's oldest son, who was transferred Tuesday night from a Newark, Del., hospital to Philly's Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, renowned in the region for its neuroscience work. But the White House said the veep still plans on attending a dinner in D.C. Wednesday night with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Beau Biden, the attorney general of Delaware, first sought medical care early Tuesday for what his doctors later described as a mild stroke that had not impeded his speech or motor skills.

On Wednesday, officials with the state Department of Justice said Biden will continue to receive therapy over coming days and that he looks foward to getting back to work soon. Officials declined to tell the Associated Press whether Biden will stay in the Philadelphia hospital during his therapy.

At 41, Beau Biden is just a little bit younger than Joe Biden was when he nearly was killed by a ruptured brain aneurysm. A senator at the time, Joe Biden recovered after surgery in 1988.

My best wishes to the Bidens and especially Beau Biden for a speedy recovery! I am a Delawarean and this family makes us all proud! Public service is paramount and they are a fabulous warm family who cares about their fellow man.

URGENT TO THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. (staff, please save and forward):

Our prayers are with Beau and the family, and I wish him a speedy recovery. But it also would be prudent to heed the words of TV's N.C.I.S. Special Agent LeRoy Jethro Gibbs: "I don't believe in coincidences."

So-called "targeted individuals" -- perhaps including some of the nation's political leaders -- may be unwitting victims of an awesome, silent, invisible and little known microwave/laser radio frequency weapon system that has been installed on cell towers in every neighborhood in America -- a precision-targeted weapon that apparently has been franchised out to various authorities, commands and operatives, and, a preponderance of evidence shows, is being used for nefarious purposes.

Please read these articles by a veteran journalist -- and question key security and intel officials under oath about the deployment of Homeland Security's "torture towers." OR re: "Gestapo USA."
