Red Finger of Courage

Things have taken a turn for the worst at the health care rallies---from finger pointing to finger biting. The below report is an account of a man losing his finger via an unidentified finger biter. Will things deteriorate from this point and what will be next, maybe ears and noses. The victim in this case is OK and has appeared on FOX News seemingly none the worse following the ordeal. Unfortunately the finger could not be re-attached, however the bright spot in this regrettable incident is that the man can point to his missing finger for years to come and recall his part in the epic struggle over socialized health care. This war injury could very well become his "Red Finger of Courage".
