An inmate at Wasco State Prison in California has sued Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (I still giggle typing that) for medical negligence for $100,000.

The inmate had previously written and requested a transfer to another prison after contracting a disease known as “valley fever” because of the prison’s location .  This disease prompts its victims to start every sentence with “Like,…” and tease their bangs up with hairspray.  Actually, valley fever it is a real disease that is a fungal infection in the lungs prominent in the Southwest which produces flu-like symptoms and can in rare cases lead to death.  Ha!  You just learned something of substance from this stupid blog.

The inmate, Terry Alexander, claims he is now confined to a  “wheelchair for life” because of Schwarzenegger medical neglect in not approving the transfer.

Thirteen years to the day after OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder charges, he was found guilty on twelve criminal charges, including armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary.

Simpson, along with his co-defendant, are now in jail and will remain there until December when they will face sentencing.  The charges against Simpson could put him in jail for the rest of his life.

Simpson’s defense lawyers plan to appeal, and believe that Simpson’s prior trial and acquittal tainted the jury and led to their decision to find Simpson guilty.
