Onetime late-night talk-show fixture Tom Snyder, 69, has been diagnosed with leukemia. He confirmed the news Monday in a post on his website. "When I was a kid, leukemia was a death sentence," he wrote. "Now, my doctors say it's treatable. With pills or chemotherapy or a combination of both." Coincidentally, Snyder's younger brother has also been diagnosed with the disease. "Suffice to say," he added. "2005 has not been a bell-ringer for the Snyder boys."
