Scraping the bottom of the culture of celebrity

More fallout from the Winona trial: Dr Jules Lusman, a 'celebrity doctor' who (over)prescribed painkillers to Winona Ryder, has had his California medical license revoked. 'The Medical Board said Dr Lusman became known in celebrity circles for his willingness to make out-of-hours calls at homes and hotels and write prescriptions for opiates and hypnotic drugs, as well as syringes...' The Smoking Gun has also posted the entire Ryder probation report, which details more sad, depressing facts which surfaced during the trial, including these about celebrity basket case Courtney Love.

And Raymond Chandler's Bay City Blues was written, what, 65 years ago?

Jeez, that is one shady website for a "celebrity doctor." But hey, he does use the "New Ebrium: Yag Laser". In my experience, it's far superior to the Old Tiberium: Zorg Laser.
