Physician: "F*** Thyself"

6:00 PM -- The disembodied voice that gave Dick Cheney a taste of his own medicine Thursday (see [Expletive Deleted]) turns out to belong to Dr. Ben Marble, an emergency room physician, organizer of breast cancer fundraisers, and semipro alt-rock musician.

He's also a master of understatement: His website about the destruction of his neighborhood and his close encounter with the most powerful man in the world is called HurricaneKatrinaSucked.com.

To recap briefly: Dr. Marble rendered Red Panda green with envy the other day by heckling the Vice President of the United States – something this writer (and millions, if not billions, of others) has done only in daydreams.

Naturally, Marble was then detained by military police. They no doubt wanted to make sure he wasn't carrying instructions from Osama... say, to wage jihad on America by repeated use of the F-word on live TV. (This tale was first told by the not-entirely-objective OpEdNews.com.)

The good doctor is currently attempting to raise some cash for his personal hurricane relief by selling his own video of the incident on eBay. Unfortunately, eBay has removed the auction, not once, but twice.

Why, you ask? Good question.
