sterile-ish

OK, now that's just *gross*.

I saw this lede sentence to a news story today:

A 54-year-old Southampton man, who police believe may have suffered a "medical" episode, was found dead in his pickup truck almost totally submerged in the ocean off a village beach on Monday.


Sure, it seems as though the article is quoting the cops, but I'd like to think the quotation marks are there to cast doubt on the field of medicine.

No doubt the result of a lawsuit. Is anything completly sterile? Nope.

Scary. Truly scary. Glad that's in a museum and not current. I wonder if QMs hold up in court...
