    DOCTORS at a New York hospital were about to remove the organs of a woman they thought was dead. Then she opened her eyes. Colleeen Burns, 41, of Syracuse, New York, was admitted to St Joseph's Hospital Health Centre in October 2009 after a drug overdose.
    Doctors concluded that she was brain dead, when in fact she was in a coma, and were preparing to harvest her organs for donation when she woke up on the operating table.
    The hospital was fined $US6000 ($6600) after the state Health Department found that doctors ignored signs that Burns was still alive.

    You can no longer trust anyone and I mean anyone. Our country has gone to shit, not even restaurants give a shit any more and serve you garbage.

    yeah i'm old. things have changed way too much.

    i'm lucky, i had good jobs, made good money, retired young enough to enjoy it. all of this stuff is coming to an end for most.

    you get what you vote for.

    i hired a bunch of people over the years, and more than 1/2 talked a good game but didn't come close to their sales pitch. when you hire weak people, the good workers get fucked by usually getting more work to do or fix.

    i'm not sure what they have been teaching kids these days. my mum put me on a paper route at 11. she made sure i worked all through high school too.

    teach your children well.

    I'm confused.. the article is current, but this happened years ago? Then she committed suicide later on?


    In honor of Dawg, tonight I will eat some fish. Fried, of course.
