Chicken Fried Frist

I popped over to Republic of T and lo' and behold I saw semi-good news from the state of Tennessee will be reviewing complaints lodged against House Majority Dictator, renowned cat killer & Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon for his diagnosis of Terri Schiavo via videotape last March. Dr. Frist who was spot on dead wrong in his assessment of the late Mrs. Schiavo's clinical condition, started announcing that he did not diagnose that woman as soon as the autopsy results revealed that she was in a persistent vegetative state with no hope of recovery. I don't expect anything to come of the investigation, but the fact they have to investigate the claim and a lot of folks will laugh about it makes it all worthwhile.

In other news, the Schiavo autopsy results supported the hypothesis that evaluating a differential and making a diagnosis through direct examination of a patient is significantly more accurate than making professionaly clinical assessments by watching edited videotape.
