I'm calling bullshiat on this one. There are far too many people in the room for anyone to get away with that crap. The doctors, nurses, there is NO way that this guy could whip out his johnson and give her a oral exam, or make out with her, with all those people right there. Bullshiat.

The Star is just awful, and Rosie is one of the table legs of its woeful, faux-outraged, faux-earnest, "what about the children", breathlessly biatchy, under-researched tripe. Picture a senile bedwetter left in a cold room with "The Collected Lou Grant" on shuffle, and you'll capture the tone of well-rotted champagne socialism and candy-ass crusading utterly bereft of logic, order and an ability to count. It takes a village of idiots to deliver this muck. They can't even criticize our clown-car of a mayor properly, which is like talking about Lohan's acting ability while she has nodded off in the gutter in front of you.

The Sunday edition is thrown free at my door for some obscure marketing reason, and it makes an excellent liner for the cat pan.

Indypendy: Maybe I'm also suffering from a lack of reading comprehension, but if she was lucid enough to realize she had a mouth full of the cocky, why didn't she just bite down. Even a little pressure would likely be enough to gain a reaction.

I think what subby did was better than using that sentence as the headline would have been.

There are quite a number of cases where doctors have been imprisoned for sexual abuse during operations, so as odd as it sounds, it's clearly doable.

Rosie Di Manno writes "commentary" pieces. A proper journalist already reported the events in question last week - (the anesthesiologist fondled her, I think) - somehow the people at the Star think it's a good idea to have Rose rant about current events that get her ire up. I think such a thing is a horrible idea. I'd rather read Stephanie Meyer.

In the editor's weekly meeting: "And another thing - do we always have to be so down in the mouth when describing rape? Can't we find a way to punch things up and work in a few zingers?"
