Florida and Texas are the states which will not grab your house to pay for your crimes if you are caught, so a lot of people of dubious practices that have money sink a small fortune into their houses there.
I know about Texas all too well. ALL TOO WELL.

I was literally killed by a doctor (nicked an artery) and then brought back to life by the trauma team at a local hospital here in Texas. When I inquired about suing the lawyers all told me they no longer take malpractice cases because they can't get anything here in Texas. It doesn't matter what I went through according to everyone and other doctors cover for each other here too.

Don't have surgery in Texas unless you are dying and know the credentials of the hospital and doctors VERY well!

I heard on HLN tonite, Conrad Murray had his attorney contact Katherine Jackson extending an invitation for her to visit him in prison.

No apology was offered for her sons death...perhaps its something he'll do in a face to face meeting.

It would be interesting to know what he wants to say to her. It would be good for at least an explanation and/or apology, although that won't bring her son back.

He was just released, after serving two years. Unbelievable.

I wonder why some people serve less time for crimes that result in the death of someone than others whose crime do not.

Yes, released, and working on getting his medical license re instated!? Great. Not.

Dr. Murray's record was unblemished until he was manipulated by the freaky drug addict, Michael Jackson. Jackson knew that Murray was in deep financial trouble so he dangled the money in front of the Dr's nose. At that point, nobody else would give Jackson propofol. He had been manipulating doctors for years. After the nurse, Cherilyn Finn, turned him down he went after the vulnerable Dr Murray. Of course Dr. Murray was wrong - but he served his time and now deserves a chance to get his life back.

I guess it takes a lot for otherwise unethical behavior to affect a doctor's medical records. From another thread on this trial:

'I've hit the jackpot,' she told a friend, according to the newspaper. By the time Jackson hired him, Murray was in serious financial trouble. In all, he owed more than $780,000, including $600,000 in court judgments for unpaid rent on office space and medical equipment in Nevada and Houston, $100,000 on the mortgage on his Vegas home and $70,000 for outstanding loans he took out at Meharry. He also owed thousands in child support. Despite it all, Murray's medical record is still unblemished by any disciplinary action by a licensing body."

I would not want him in charge of my medical care. Allow him to do some Social Security disability reviews. That is it. He has no ethics. And MJ heart stopped, this heart surgeon did not even know CPR!
