People should have gone to jail for this:

Medical Office Responsible For Transmitting Hepatitis C To Patients Can Reopen

The Santa Barbara medical office of Dr. Allen Thomashefsky may reopen after it was shut down for unsafe injection practices.
The Public Health Department for Santa Barbara County released the following statement:
"Santa Barbara County Health Officer, Charity Dean, MD, MPH, has rescinded the Health Officer Order closing the medical office of Dr. Allen Thomashefsky. This action follows a number of measures that have been implemented to assure infection control practices are maintained at the medical office.
The Health Officer Order closing the medical office was implemented on March 19, 2015, after an inquiry revealed that the Hepatitis C virus may have been transmitted between patients and that appropriate and standard infection control precautions were not being practiced. Since that time, a number of key actions have been taken by Dr. Thomashefsky including adopting a detailed and extensive Infection Control Manual, hiring a consultant who will be monitoring infection control practices on an ongoing basis, and local monitoring by Public Health officials."
Genetic testing of Dr. Thomashefsky's former patients revealed at least four people who had procedures at his office the same day tested positive for Hepatitis C. A fifth may have contracted the deadly disease prior to treatment.
Dr. Thomashefky's practice is still limited in Oregon.
The Oregon and California Medical Boards are still investigating the case.

People are going to die from medical malfeasance, but what the hell? Give the assholes another chance.

DAC Is In Trouble Again

David Allan Coe has the Willie Nelson syndrome, but not the fan base to extract himself from this predicament.

David Allan Coe


Country singer David Allan Coe owes the IRS nearly a half-million dollars for taxes due as far back as 1993. The singer pleaded guilty to one count of obstructing the due administration of the IRS on Monday (Sept. 14) and could face three years in prison plus a $250,000 fine. 
Coe, known for his hit “Take This Job and Shove It,” owes more than $466,000, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. This includes taxes from 2008 to 2013 when he either failed to file income tax returns or didn’t pay taxes owned. Interest and penalties are part of the figure. 
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that instead of paying his taxes, the 76-year-old used his money earned from concerts to cover other debts and gambling. Furthermore, he arranged to be paid in cash, but not in $50 bills as, according to the news release, “he believed they were bad luck and would not gamble with them.” 
WLWT-TV reports that the majority of the money owed comes from the 2009 tax year. Coe plays approximately 100 shows each year and has arranged a system where his road manager picks up the cash, pays himself and the band and gives the remaining money to Coe. IRS officials point to this setup as another way he was impeding their ability to collect taxes. 
Coe is known as being part of the outlaw movement of country music. He spent significant time in prison during the 1960s for crimes like auto theft and armed robbery, and says his sentence was extended after he killed another inmate who was in search of a sexual favor. The legitimacy of that story is debated.

Guess ya just can't keep it all.
