Updated and Bumped: CBS 7 – Your Eye on West Texas covering the Winkler County Nurse Trial

Welcome InstaPundit readers!

(links fixed @ 2225 Central; sorry).

If you’re new to this story, the backgrounder is here.

The trial of Anne Mitchell, RN for doing her duty (reporting bad patient care to the Texas Medical Board) started 3 days ago.  I cannot find CBS’s coverage (if there was any) of Day 1, but there is pretty good coverage of days 2 & 3.

Day 2

Day 3

Having read that (and being quite biased for the nurse in this case) so far all Ms. Mitchell has to worry about are her legal bills.  I suspect they’ll be covered by the settlement from her civil suit for malicious prosecution.

Update: ABC’s Good Morning America has a good report on this as well, with about a 3 minute video.

Sure, Kevin, MD writes OpEds for USA Today, but has he been quoted in Readers’ Digest? I think not.

The March, 2010 issue is out, and a few of my well-meaning quips are included in a story “50 things the ER Staff Won’t Tell You” or somesuch (I’m going by email reports here, I don’t have a copy yet).

The link above is to their online version, which has 10 of them.  Now, should I add this to my CV?

January, 2008 a Boeing 777 landed short (300 meters) of Heathrow.  No deaths, fortunately.  The aircraft looks like a write-off from the damage description, but I’d be interested to know if I’m wrong.

Here’s the official British report: it’s well written and understandable.  If you’re interested, ‘synopsis’ gives the why, and ‘conclusions’ gives a clinically chilling look at the crash and its cause.

Snow Removal Tips – How to Shovel Snow – Popular Mechanics.

I’ve never had to shovel snow,so these tips were new to me.

I still don’t want to, but maybe some of you are snowed in right now, saying “If only I knew the 16 Cardinal Rules, I’d be able to shovel my way out”.

You’re Welcome.
