Is there any question that the picture of the guy on the stretcher with the firemen arrayed around, taken from directly above, him is going to win the pulitzer?

Jennifer said...

Wow. Talk about blowing off your nose to spite your face.

Ann Althouse said...

Sippican: Yeah, I give the guy some credit. He really did strike a pose.

Does this mean Dr. Bartha wins?

Ann Althouse said...

Bissage: Yeah, this is the extreme games version of I'm going to take my ball and go home.

In an Islamic society things would have been much easier for Dr. Bartha.

Good riddance to the dumb bastard.

Daryl Herbert said...

The opinion also said Bartha had ''ignored her need for support and assistance while she was undergoing surgery and treatment for breast cancer.''

Is that before or after the divorce?

Because it seems to me extreme arrogance to deny your spouse the benefits of marriage and then demand those same benefits for yourself.

Hmm...Let me see if I can find that copy of "The War of the Roses" in my DVD collection....

Jennifer said...

Daryl - I assume since the quote you mention comes directly from the court opinion, it would have to be pre-divorce. Unless they were in court for something after the divorce.

Johnny: She probably said something like this to him:

"Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!"
