My ex was a nurse. Whenever she was a patient and had to wear a hospital gown, she would always grab two and wear one frontwards, the other backwards.

This summer, Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park will join a select group of medical centers that are trying to close the dreaded gluteal gap patients get with most hospital gowns.

Beyond complaints about flimsy materials and faded colors, patients in focus groups have told the hospital they feel exposed with current gowns — in ways that promote an unnecessarily hierarchical relationship with caregivers.

For some fool reason (as my mother would have said), they need a study to confirm that persons don’t like walking around with their rear ends hanging out on public display.

Pedantic” has negative connotations for a reason.

Your security farces at work:

Guess what superhero-like weapons TSA agents confiscated from a passenger’s carry-on bag at Charlotte Douglas International Airport this week?

Three batarangs, those roughly bat-shaped throwing weapons used by Batman.

It’s not the beer; it’s the brotherhood.

In a terrible miscalculation, a Louisiana State University fraternity entrusted four underage members to transport its massive beer and booze cache from Baton Rouge to sunny Gulf Shores, Alabama, where the collegians this week are celebrating spring break.

They got pulled over for expired tags and their fortunes went downhill from there.

Follow the link for the inventory of their cargo. I’ve been to bars that keep less stock on hand.

(On second thought, it’s the beer.)

Shaun Mullen thinks he may have uncovered that rarest of the rare things, an actual case of voter fraud.

Afterthought:

This was likely nothing more than a mistake. Then, again, it could be part of a campaign to make his brother look like “the smart one.”

Someone once defined an “auto accident” as an event which causes passers-by to drive cautiously for the next 15 minutes.

______________

*Signal 30 was a similar strategy from an earlier time. I predict that this effort will be as successful as that one, that is, a complete and utter failure.

The lust of the media to make make up myths about kids’ getting high on weird stuff that no one is actually getting high on mystifies many.

Heh.

A Michigan man who thought he was having a stroke was hospitalized this week after eating several pot brownies that were baked by his teenage daughter, police report.

(snip)

The victim’s 17-year-old daughter told cops that she left the brownies out because she did not think anyone in her family would touch them (the girl was apparently unaware of the deep affinity middle-age men have to such unattended sweets).

Back in my younger days, I had one guiding principle: Don’t do something stupid and you won’t get caught.

Kids.
