Update on the Scott Sisters from Mississippi

Remember them? Gov Haley Barbour released them on parole with the condition that one give a kidney to the other. While I was peeved he would be such an ass, I was more enraged that no one in the transplant industry (OPTN, UNOS, ACOT, ASTS, the rest of the alphabet soup) said a word in opposition, even though a thing is ILLEGAL.

So Barbour’s made the news again with his ‘pardons’, which the Mississippi court has temporarily halted.

Naturally, someone had to check in with the Scott Sisters:
