This is a really really sad story about a sad sad old man
with a life-long dream to have someone cut his leg off and
the sad sad doctor who took him to a south o' the border clinic
and did it. The sad sad old man isn't as sad any more, cause he's dead.
The sad doctor is now a sad sad doctor because he's facing 25 years in jail
and a significantly shorter life expectancy.
Imagine living 80 years thinking your leg was some sort of weird alien limb
accidentally stuck to your body, ugh! I'm sure there's got to be some sort of
crazy neurological miss-wiring behind it but it doesn't make it any less spooky.
And you gotta wonder about this "fringe" doctor, he sounds like a Very Bad Man,
but he was also the only person willing to say "You want that done? That'll make
you happy? OK-- I can do that." Or maybe it was more like "OK-- how much money
do you have?" In either case it would have help if he hadn't left the guy to DIE
