And these are the times that try our soles (of our feet)
Yes, that is the escalator on six in the REGJB, in its normal non-operative state.
SAM KONELL TO FED PRISON FOR FIVE YEARS
We missed this article by ace Herald scribe Ovalle on the sentencing of REGJB irregular Sam Konell to five years in federal prison by US District Judge Jose Martinez late last month for patient brokering.
It was a nice touch for Judge White-Labora to be a stand-up gal and write a letter on his behalf. But as the article makes clear, Konell had free run of the jail and was pulling down over a 100K a year for six years brokering patients for Medicare treatments they didn't need. Martinez was sympathetic to Konell's lifetime of good deed, but the SDFLA is the epi-center of medical fraud and we, the taxpayers foot the bill for shenanigans of this sort.
It's always sad to see a good man turn bad. These are indeed the times that try men's souls.
From Occupied America, where everyone but us wants to work at the White House, Fight the Power!
