From yesterday’s NY Times letters to the editor section:

To the Editor:

Re “A Sharp Turn for the Supreme Court on Abortion” (letters, April 20):

I am a rheumatologist caring for a patient whose lupus nephritis is flaring. Her creatinine is rising as her platelet count falls, and she has failed to improve with pulse methylprednisolone and intravenous cyclophosphamide. I am contemplating using rituximab. I would like to refer this case to the United States Supreme Court for its guidance.

I am trying to decide between an IRA versus a Roth IRA versus a tax-deferred annuity versus going it alone. Should I petition the SCOTUS for an opinion? Also, I am looking for cheap international phone service. Do you think the NSA can offer advice?

ha. I figured we all needed a laugh.

His letter reminds me of Stephanie McMillan’s fabulous cartoon about SD state legislator Bill Napoli: http://www.minimumsecurity.net/toons2006/6034.htm.

Here is the official text of Kennedy’s opinion:

“Nitě řiktu sév dě klýťu mřižrev. Dich bid otku veš bědi ktoně s jiv.
