The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Dr. Suzanne Y. Succop, MD. of Boynton Beach Florida. She gets the award for denying me further treatment when I'm in her care(home nursing visits due to her doctor's orders). Why is she doing this? I have a past balance of $390. Dr. Succop has seen me at JFK hospital in 2001, 2005, 2007, 08, and this year. She is no longer on my health insurance plan.

I don't deny owing her money but right now I'm totally unemployed. Also I'm facing bankruptcy and foreclosure at this moment. The doctor, who I had an appointment with at 3 this afternoon, asked me to pay on the balance. I offered $50, they are insisting on $100. I don't have $100. As part of my home health visits, I am getting IV antibiotics which are to continue to 9-28. When they are over, my pic line is due to come out. I need a doctor's order for that to be done. The doctor, or her office staff, aren't going to issue that order unless I pay the $100 they are asking.

My pic line site is bleeding this morning and the nurse had to change the bandages. She thinks it is wise for the doctor to see the site. No blood can also be drawn from the pic line.

The doctor won't see me to check the pic line. Unless I pay the $100. For $50 this doctor and her office of buffoons want to play potential games with my health. That is why I name Dr. Suzanne Y. Succop, MD. of Boynton Beach Florida today's Knucklehead of the day. I will file each and every complaint I can, bad mouth this doctor to everyone who will hear me, and ultimately they won't get a penny because sometime in the next 6 months, I'll have to file for bankruptcy. That's what you get for $50 doctor. I hope you Dr. Succop feel it is worth it.

Update- This Knucklehead's office felt the need to call the police. I'm a threat to them. What a bunch of morons Dr. Succop's office staff is.

Now they will issue an order for the removal of the pic line, but the doctor won't see me unless I pay them the $100 they're asking. The Knucklehead award still stands. Avoid this doctor like the plague, money is more important than a patient's health to her.

Women are from Venus

And the wife of Japan's next Prime Minister claims to have visited that planet. From Reuters-

Japan’s next prime minister might be nicknamed “the alien,” but it’s his wife who claims to have had a close encounter with another world.

“While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus,” Miyuki Hatoyama, the wife of premier-in-waiting Yukio Hatoyama, wrote in a book published last year.

"It was a very beautiful place and it was really green.”

Yukio Hatoyama is due to be voted in as premier on September 16 following his party’s crushing election victory over the long-ruling Liberal Democratic Party Sunday.
My own travels have been closer to home. All fifty United States and over a dozen countries. Even if I was offered a ride on a spaceship, I would take a pass.

Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens to retire?

President Obama looks likely to get another Supreme Court nomination in the next year. From AP-

Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has hired fewer law clerks than usual, generating speculation that the leader of the court's liberals will retire next year.

If Stevens does step down, he would give President Barack Obama his second high court opening in two years. Obama chose Justice Sonia Sotomayor for the court when Justice David Souter announced his retirement in May.

Souter's failure to hire clerks was the first signal that he was contemplating leaving the court.

Stevens, 89, joined the court in 1975 and is the second-oldest justice in the court's history, after Oliver Wendell Holmes. He is the seventh-longest-serving justice, with more than 33 years and eight months on the court.

Stevens when asked by Associated Press, did confirm that he has only hired one law clerk. Retired Supreme Court Justices are allowed one clerk. Active justices can have up to four.

Is too much being made of Stevens clerk selection process?

But one former clerk, University of Oklahoma law professor Joseph Thai, said he takes it as a sign that Stevens is likely to retire soon.

"It seems to indicate that he probably won't go beyond the current term," Thai said, cautioning that Stevens has said nothing to him about leaving

. I don't think so. In light of Stevens age, I think he is about to retire. He was nominated to the Court in 1975 by President Gerald Ford and will turn 90 years old very soon.

Stevens has been considered a liberal member of the court, but that isn't exactly correct. His decisions have been known to be idiosyncratic over the years more than anything else. Still a replacement chosen by President Obama isn't likely to swing the court to the left.


Back to Toledo

Some great news for the LPGA-

Toledo Classic, Inc., which operates the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic, has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon at which time an extension of its agreement with the LPGA Tour is expected to be announced.

A source familiar with the negotiations indicated it will be a one-year contract that will assure the tournament will be staged in 2010. No details on playing dates or purse were made available.
Next up- Will Michelob be saved? Is it possible the Corning Classic* isn't dead yet? A change of commissioner has brought the LPGA some good news.

If the Jamie Farr is around another ten years, I expect Se Ri Pak to get her record breaking 6th win there. As Farr said once, Se Ri owns Toledo. She won there in 98,99, 01, 03, 07, and finished one shot out of the lead in 2000 and 2004. She may be leaping in joy again like she did after her record breaking** 1999 Farr victory.

*- There are two LPGA Tournaments with 'Corning Classic' in their title. The Toledo tournament and another that was played in Corning New York every year for over 30 years and believed to have played its last edition this year.

**- The 1999 Farr saw the biggest playoff in LPGA history. Six golfers in all took part in sudden death. Pak won it with a birdie on the first hole of sudden death.
