“I don’t think we should be worried,” he asserted.

“People should really think about what it’s all about. Really.

“I’ve had my 17th comeback, apparently.

“I keep wondering about the word ‘comeback.’

“I didn’t go anywhere.

“As a matter of fact, I live about 45 minutes away.

“Maybe people stopped calling out of whatever their fear was at the time.

“But I didn’t go nowhere,” he said.
