They just save our lives and try to make our lives better... Screw Them All!! A doctor in Germany has to pay child support for a child conceived due to a failed contraceptive operation performed by the doctor! Pay child support? Okay, getting sued I can see, but pay child support? Come on people, we're pushing this screw the doctors thing a bit far. I know they're supposedly filthy rich and are human gods, saving people's lives and manipulating their reproductive systems, but shouldn't we just, um, let them do their jobs? As much as we'd like doctors to be perfect because they're dealing with life and death, it's just not possible. They're human and we're just going to have to accept that.

The first woman to head the Chinese Writer's Association. On some blogs, there was an expressed discomfort or concern that she's served for the Communist Chinese government and therefore associates herself as a Communist. Um, hello, she's Chinese! The whole country's Communist. What'd you think, she'd be Republican? Not that that'd be much better than Communism in our country right now according to the masses...

Speaking of China, animal activists would be going nuts over this in America. Good thing the Olympics are in China in 2008 and not here. I mean, most people just use their spouses to test for poisioned food here.

Isabel Allende, pro-women or pro-women who help murder mass amounts of innocent people? You decide.

The illogical logic of Dawkins.

Step right up and get your very own crappy book!

If that's not enough to keep you busy, check out Grumpy Old Bookman's Thursday Linkage. He puts me to shame.

Yeah, I know, and I thought things were out of hand with lawsuits against doctors here! It's getting crazy out there in this world of ours...

When you get those operations they tell you and make you sign papers that you know this isn't 100%. Sorry folks there is very few things that are. I think it is a little ridiculous to make the doctor pay child support just think of how high the malpractice insurance rates would go.

Yeah, totally agree, Lisa. And people wonder why our doctor's bills are so overpriced...
