Janklow: “I know it’s at the end of the trail”


With a fresh incision curving along his hairline from temple to ear visible to all, former South Dakota Gov. Bill Janklow broke down and cried Friday as he announced that he's dying of brain cancer…Janklow, 72, a Republican who dominated South Dakota politics for more than a quarter century, said the cancer is aggressive and that he's undergoing treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. The incision along the left side of his face is from a recent procedure during which doctors examined the cancer.
