Another Miracle From Bill Frist

Another Miracle From Bill Frist

(Wherein the doctor who proved himself a master of distant diagnosis in the Terri Schiavo case offers a succinct explanation of why he ordered his “totally blind” trust to dump his holdings in the family healthcare company just before the stock dropped.)

That I sold stock I didn’t know was there.

(Whereupon his blind trust is examined by some law professors with ophthalmological training.)

This patient’s sight shows some improvement,
Detecting shapes of market movement.
