Scrushy ordered to pay investors $2.9 billion – U.S. business-

Of course, he doesn’t have $2.9 billion. And rather than completely being wiped out, I’m sure he’ll declare bankruptcy and preserve what he can. But he deserves this. He deserves more, but this will have to do.

That’s our Dick!

Silicon Valley: HealthSouth Paid For Someone’s Fake Boobs

I haven’t mentioned it, but there’s a civil trial going on where Scrushy’s being sued — basically, an OJ situation. One thing that’s come out is that the Scrush had the company pay for replacement fake boobs for a member of his silly girl group.

Let’s get digital

Trinity Medical Center has asked the state for permission to move to a former HealthSouth site along U.S. 280 –

This is, still, the old “digital hospital” that was Richard Scrushy’s dream, now just an ordinary analog hospital. Or its shell. Trinity wants to move from its current location to the site on US 280, but Brookwood Medical will probably try to block it because it’s in Brookwood’s “market”. They’re all a bunch of loving caregivers, really.

McCain campaign tied to Scrushy!

HealthSouth recovers $133 million in suit against investment vbank [sic] UBS –

So, UBS, which helped Richard Scrushy in his massive fraud against the shareholders of HealthSouth and the people of the United States of America, has to pay $100 million and forgive $33 million in “debt”. UBS’ vice chairman is Phil Gramm, John McCain’s top economics man. Under the McCain Rules, this means that Gramm is guilty by association. When will John McCain condemn Phil Gramm for his fraud against HealthSouth shareholders?

Screw you, Irondale!

Trinity Medical to buy HealthSouth’s abandoned hospital –

This is the famous “digital hospital”, which would have seen all diseases as a series of ones and zeroes. It was abandoned when the HealthSouth scandal hit, with the shell of the building completed but everything else unfinished. Birmingham gave Trinity $55 million in incentives (I’m guessing dome money) to buy the place and finish it. Trinity was going to build a new hospital in Irondale, but so much for that.

I hope this continues tomorrow!

UPDATE: Richard Scrushy in Birmingham courtroom to answer questions – Breaking News from The Birmingham News –

I’ve been subpoenaed (don’t ask, it doesn’t really have anything to do with me) and will have to be in the same courthouse tomorrow. Just think, me and Scrushy, same building, both telling judges they don’t know anything about that. Only I’ll be telling the truth.

Maybe the mayor should disassociate himself

Mayor dissolves school laptop board; John Katopodis disassociates himself from charity-


BMLL dissolved the board of his laptop charity, what with the alleged corruption and the HealthSouth link and the gay porn and all, and has asked the City Council to name another in its place. I’m sure that he won’t try to influence the selections at all.
