His rep previously said Mac's sarcoidosis was not related to the pneumonia, which hospitalized the star last week. Hmmm...Jupiter has been transiting Retrograde had a deleterious effect for sure.

Mac started as a stand-up comedian in Chicago's Cotton Pickin' Club. He won the Miller Lite Comedy Search at the age of 32, at which point his popularity as a comedian began to grow. A performance on HBO's Def Comedy Jam thrust him into the spotlight.
Fate or Destiny, with four TSQ's natally all invovling the Nodes, put this King of Comedy on top. Mac was one of the few African American comedic actors to be able to break out of the traditional "black comedy" genre, having roles in the 2001 remake of Ocean's Eleven and becoming the new Bosley for the Charlie's Angels sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. In 2003, he also turned in an impressive performance in a small but important role as "Gin, The Store Dick" in, Bad Santa. He also starred in, Guess Who?, a comedic remake of the film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.

When she has problems getting out of the water, he reaches down and helps her as their eyes meet. "
Or 10 Taurus 49 S. Node : A woman sprinkling flowers. More graphic representation that relates to Bernie's ability to recognize the good and bad character in others plus provide guidance to the young.
