After all the shit the Republicans have pulled: Senate Control in 2014 Increasingly Looks Like a Tossup
25 Years After Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, Company Still Hasn't Paid For Long-Term Environmental Damages
(Jackson, TN) A Mid-South woman has filed a complaint with the Tennessee Department of Health after she said the doctor she went to see for back pain gave her an insulting diagnosis.
"He said 'I know what the problem is. It's ghetto booty,'" said 55-year-old Terry Ragland about what she was told by Dr. Timothy Sweo in April.
"What I was trying to explain to that patient is that she has lumbar lordosis, which is a fancy name for the curve of the lower spine that makes the buttocks protrude more. In trying to explain that I said that she had ghetto booty and she didn't like that apparently. That was my attempt to explain why she had the back problem. It wasn't the whole problem but it was part of it and she got upset about it," said Sweo by phone. "You cannot cure lumbar lordosis."
"I think I do understand why her feelings were hurt but I don't understand what's offensive about it," said Sweo. (Emphasis mine.)
Actually, let me retract my first question and ask this: Do you ever wonder what would have happened if we'd just let the South secede and try to make it on its own?
