The Hand Center has sent outa 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 andkick 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.”) --Craig Malisow
