- QUOTE: "Veterans are dying on wait lists because some bureaucrat with a calculator and no medical training says it is too expensive, and yet this judge grants a criminal who will spend the rest of his life behind prison walls a sex-change operation... I know Justice is to be blind, I didn’t think it was to be insane as well!”
