First Prize for Fatted Swine

I may be Jewish, but I know pork when I see it-- legal pork, that is.

Women Sue Wal-Mart Over Morning-After Pill [Washington Post via Drudge]

BOSTON -- Backed by abortion rights groups, three Massachusetts women sued Wal-Mart on Wednesday, accusing the retail giant of violating a state regulation by failing to stock emergency contraception pills in its pharmacies.

The lawsuit, filed in state court, seeks to force the company to carry the morning-after pill in its 44 Wal-Marts and four Sam Club stores in Massachusetts.

The plaintiffs argued that state policy requires pharmacies to provide all "commonly prescribed medicines."

Shouldn't it be scarier that the "Morning After Pill" can be dubbed "commonly prescribed medicine"? Actually, the scariest thing of all is that the Morning After Pill is second only to penicillin when it comes to the "commonly prescribed" list.

"I want my $14.95 back," said Karen Futernick, whose suit was filed Friday in federal court in Manhattan. "They have an obligation to check."

Readers also are suing in state and federal courts in Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle.

"How do you produce a book, call it nonfiction and sell it without checking out the stories in it?" said Futernick's attorney, Alan Ripka. "All they had to do was a little due diligence ... make a few phone calls."

Yeah, tell that to Dan Rather and Mary Mapes. Seriously, this is fantastic. We have reached new levels of litigation in this country-- does this mean I can sue Bill Clinton for My Life? If so, I'm gonna suggest all of us conservatives out there go whole hog (in a completely kosher fashion) and participate in a class-action lawsuit against the King of Sax. Who's in? Just think-- getting him into the limelight right before the '06 and into the '08 elections could do wonders to damage Hillary's already slim-chances of winning the Presidency. Maybe we'd even get on OPRAH!
