The doctor is out

When last we heard from Jeffrey Schimandle, he was losing his license to practice medicine in Oklahoma. A decent interval having elapsed, Dr Schimandle applied to the Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision for reinstatement, and was turned down; Elizabeth Scott, assistant Attorney General, representing the Board, says that Schimandle has "thumbed his nose at the state of Oklahoma."

Schimandle vows to appeal to the state Supreme Court. Meanwhile, I noticed this quote by psychologist Ray Hand, who testified in Schimandle's behalf at the hearing:

[He's] a bright guy with a lot of potential.

If I remember correctly — I went to a lot of shrinks in the 80s — Dr Hand once asserted that I was a bright guy with a lot of potential, and well, we all know how that worked out.
