It’s been entirely too grim around here lately, what with the bailout and the debate and this entirely unacceptable weekend weather. So let’s have a round-up of what makes this blog unique, and why readers from around the world peruse it so faithfully, often with just one hand.
Fort Lauderdale mayoral hopeful Steve Rossi has a slogan that’s sure to get attention: He says he’s had more people sit on his face than any of the other candidates in the race.
Rossi’s face is on bus benches, you see, where he advertises his law practice. People sit on those benches. Sun-Sentinel
With a campaign slogan like this, Rossi elevates the level of South Florida political sophistication from sewer to toilet.
Louisville, KY — A Shelby County man and his wife said two doctors amputated the man’s penis without his consent, and have filed a lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, Philip Seaton, 61, went to have a circumcision last October as part of treatment for a medical condition. Seaton said when he woke up from the procedure, he realized his penis had been amputated.
Wonder what gave him the first clue?
The lawsuit states that Patterson received consent to perform a circumcision and only a circumcision, and that Seaton did not consent to his penis being removed. Kevin George, the plaintiff’s attorney, said Patterson amputated the organ after finding cancer, but he only had consent to remove the foreskin.
“Sometimes you have an emergency and you have to do this, but he could very easily closed him up and said, ‘Here are your options. You have cancer,’ and the family would have said, ‘We want a second opinion. This is a big deal,'” George said.
The lawsuit also claims the plaintiff did not consent to general anesthesia.
Yeah, but I bet he’s happy he had it. Probably could use some more.
And lastly, look what the wind blew in. It’s a case of “DWF” — Driving With Flatulence, which evidently is illegal in West Virginia….
Charleston, WV – A West Virginia man accused of passing gas and fanning it toward a police officer no longer faces a battery charge. The Kanawha County prosecutor’s office requested that the charge be dropped against 34-year-old Jose Cruz.
According to a criminal complaint, Cruz passed gas and made a fanning motion toward patrolman T.E. Parsons after being taken to the police station for a breathalyzer test. Cruz denies fanning the gas and says his request to use a restroom when first arriving at the station was denied.
Cruz, who was arrested Tuesday, still faces driving under the influence and other charges. Yahoo.com
Wonder if one of the other charges was passing gas on the right? Anyway, Officer Huff could not be reached for comment.
