QUOTE OF THE DAY….From transplant surgeon Timothy Pruett, president-elect of the United Network for Organ Sharing:

“We have to guarantee to the public that we’re not going to go out and kill people to get their organs.”

Yes, that sounds like a reasonable PR goal to me.

(Pruett was responding to a case in which a transplant surgeon in California may have “ordered excessive doses of powerful pain medication to speed the death” of an accident victim. It’s under investigation.)
