Tim Lahaye, author of the Left Behind series was interviewed by Newsweek as part of the coverage of the Mideast Crisis. Couple of interesting things stand out. Questions are in bold
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
From behind a screen in a Kansas City court June 5, the doctor who devised and supervised the state’s lethal injection procedure described it in terms so troubling to a federal judge that he ordered it halted.
The doctor testified anonymously that he is dyslexic. That he sometimes confused names of drugs. That he sometimes gave inconsistent testimony. That the injection protocol was not written down, and that he made changes on his “independent authority.”
And that turns out not to be all.
According to ABC News Western Carolina University is planning on creating a new forensic anthropology research facility to study how the environment in North Carolina affects the decomposition of human remains:
Soon, Williams will have a new place to conduct his research a well-hidden location near Western Carolina’s campus where he and students studying the science of the human skeleton and human remains can watch cadavers decompose in the mountainous environment of western North Carolina.
“They’ll be involved with the daily observation process. Very early on, you are examining that body daily, because the changes initially go very quickly,” Williams said. “They’ll learn how to observe as scientists.”
Chistopher Vittore, MD (with Mike Henderson) examined the pathological pedal phalanx of Jane. He showed radiographs (as a radiologist, he pointed out that an image made with X-rays is a “radiograph”: NOBODY can “see X-rays”!!) and CT scans of the wound, and got a diagnosis of a Brodie abscess.
(This is actually another term for subacute osteomyelitis)
