The Hand Center has sent out

a press release

saying medical license-loser Michael Brown is going to get a taste of his own medicine. No – no one’s going to beat him with a broken bedpost and

kick him down the stairs

. He’s going to undergo an operation on his own hand! Helluva story, really, but Business Wire should amend the headline to read “Prestigious Hand Surgeon, Philanthropist, Inventor, and Wife-Beater.” Why short-change the guy? (Come to think of it, we’re not too sure about “philanthropist,” either. Might want to change that to “drug-test-failer.”) --

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
