Is Steve Jobs Sick?

First MacDailyNews asked the question, and Paul Thurrott's Internet Nexus ponders the same after reading MacDailyNews. I didn't see the keynote, or half of it anyway (PowerBook battery died, PC audio isn't working), until this morning, but I didn't think Jobs looked sick. And their is a good explanation for the use of multiple people, other than the sick question. Apple is trying to show there are more people behind the curtain running the show than just Steve. It's meant to answer those that question if their is a CEO transition plan in place when Steve makes an exit, illness related or otherwise. I think this is part of the CEO interview process, see how other current execs play to the crowds. Steve can't be CEO or the only showman forever.
