Oh yeah by the way, about the dentist story...

It was on the national news because I like to listen to Larry Elder online from KABC-AM. It was reported by ABC Radio News that Diamond Brownridge has passed away after being in a coma since Saturday following her visit to the dentist. The family is said to be taking the necessary legal steps to be able to determine this case's eligibility for a malpractice lawsuit.

So it's around the country today. Still a very sad story.

Seems like a prima facie case of malpractice-at the least-if the details to this story are accurate.

My family is leery-in general-of dentistry, and my most of them refuse to be put under when they do go to the dentist.

Sad, sad story.
