Distressing Condition

Our chief justice had a seizure today.

I expect to hear a lot of dumb 4th amendment jokes concerning "unreasonable searches and seizures".

He had another seizure back in 1993. So that's 2 seizures, lifetime, 14 years apart. But once you've had 2, doctors often recommend meds for the rest of your life.

Fyodor Dostoevsky scraped along without medicine for a more drastic form of this condition, managing to write great works of literature. But I bet he would have jumped at the chance to get modern drugs, despite his suspicious attitude toward scientific progress.

Would you rather take an annoying med
Or risk another storm in your head?
