Actually the lunch I ate today was the best korean I've had in years, and *is* probably the best korean food in the PDX area. 15 dollars, 2 bento lunches (bulgogi and grilled chicken), totally adequate and not supersized portions, VERY tasty. Main bento with rice, meat of choice, potstickers, fried tofu. Side dishes as usual- kimchi, potatoes, broccoli. Took a while to get the food, I assume because it's not pre-prepared. Host/waiter man energetic and very friendly, gave us taste hints (mix your kimchi with the fried tofu) and others.
Go there for lunch, then walk by with a satisfied all-knowingness at the poor folks eating at "zagat-rated" Subway sandwiches next door.

Knowing many, Emergency Dept doctors don't usually employ phrases with ALL-CAPS in IA rants.
IA sounds more like a person who checks people in, or changes linens, and overhears things then makes idiotic judgments. You know, the asexual, disgusting one who has cobwebbed genitals-- that's what drives this type of rant.
You chose to work in an Emergency Department in a society with shitty health insurance, so fucking deal with it, moron. Either mind your own fucking business or better yet, learn how to take care of people constructively. Or just keep talking and get fired.

More pictures of Luck, fewer facts about what really happened, please.
Also, fucked up, judicial, California mom-and-pop 1% holistic anti-rights privileged racism is obviously at work.
"disquieting accusation about what happened after he was taken into custody".
what's the disquieting part? I completely missed it.
KPH, the Merc is not the place to suggest or sustain fact-based debate. It's a place for the Merc writers to champion one-sided stories, without including a shred of the opposing viewpoint, all the while saturating their writing with cheeky comments. By the time i got to the derived fact of the lot "valuated at 2.9 million", I know I was being force-fed pure shit.
"OKAY, I GET IT." No, you don't. You can't play the holy-principled-progressive game without a full deck.
'But the suit argues it's among the least desirable, saying it's used mainly in "third world countries" and "in dogs and cats."'
This sloppy, strangely judgmental sentence betrays the one-sided and specious nature of this article. Do you really champion a lawsuit that uses the terminology "third world countries" as an insult, aligning people with animals? Or are you going for effect, over facts? Fact: phenobarbital may have a "narrow therapeutic index" but is effective at controlling seizures when used properly. Getting a seizure once a day would not be considered good control, and changing the antiepileptic regimen just MIGHT have been based partly on that, not cost.
For a publication that purportedly fosters independent analysis and healthy skepticism, you sure sound like you swallowed the medical board's (and ambulance chasers') kool-aid. I know it's hard when you don't have access to any real facts, but maybe try to avoid trite slander.
I disagree with this Aaron Brady bit. First of all, it's none of my fucking business; their family has substantial, deranged problems from all prior reports. But that's for them to sort out. I have a problem with lumping this molestation case into any sort of "rape culture" argument because the accusation is of child molestation, not rape; these are arguably very different phenomena. And I don't like the demonization of people who suggest firmly-held memories can (gasp!) be nonfactual, or that it's incredibly horrible to say the fucked-up scenario of their family (NOT MY BUSINESS) could've resulted in the occurrence or content of a coached recording and lasting imprint. Don't be so sure. Those of us who claim uncertainty aren't "rape cultured" (but add that to my new, least-favorite phrases)-- it's showing some fucking humility.
On the other hand, believing everything everyone says without knowing any facts; especially when there stakes involved for all; that's what I would call "cultured ignorant". I believe neither Woody (who's clinically deranged, and makes good movies) nor Dylan (who has a real memory, occurring in a bizarre context but without certainty; and now a catharsis in a newspaper)-- but completely disagree that this is some profound symbolization of a greater cause for sex abuse-awareness. Instead, I think choosing this case to make some sort a larger point about child abuse or rape in society as a whole is a huge, conflated error.
Who fucking cares, someone got their rollerblades taken by a power-trippin cop. You're both members of a tiny, irrelevant Circus; you both "did this to yourselves". Sorry you all didn't get this out of your system at age 19. (oh, if you're 19 or in College, i apologize, you're entitled.) Get something more serious to care about readers, and write about, Merc.
