They want a temporary injunction to give them enough time to fight Davis' dismissal. The Pastor was voted out Tuesday night. An attorney for the trustees sought to have the complaint dismissed on Constitutional grounds, citing the separation of church and state. The judge said he would offer a written ruling next week. In the meantime he denied the emergency injunction.

((Imagine checking for tonsilitis in someone who's already had their tonsils removed. According to a new study, that's exactly the kind of thing gynecologists are doing to millions of women who've had hysterectomies.

SOT, SIROVICH, FIRST Q WHAT WE FOUND, WHICH WAS QUITE SUPRISING, IS THAT WOMEN CONTINUE TO BE SCREENED FOR CANCER IN AN

ORGAN THAT THEY DON'T HAVE
Dr. Brenda Sirovich's study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that 10 million women each year get pap smears even though they've had a total hysterectomy. The purpose of a pap smear is to check for cancer in the cervix. A woman who's had a total hysterectomy has no cervix.... She's had both her her uterus and her cervix surgically removed. So when these women get paps, doctors are just swabbing the inside of the woman's vagina.

SOT, SIROVICH, sixth q

IT'S A WASTE OF TIME
And it's more than that. Pap smears sometimes come back positive even though there's nothing wrong.

SOT, SASLOW

IT IS DISAPPOINTING THAT SO MANY WOMEN WERE OVERSCREENED AND THEY'RE GETTING A LOT OF UNNECESSARY FOLO-UP TESTS BECAUSE OF IT.
That's one reason the American Cancer Society, along with other prominent cancer groups and the federal government, tell doctors NOT to do pap tests on women who've had hysterectomies unless they've had cervical cancer. So why do doctors keep doing them? One theory is - the government issues report cards on how well doctors administer prereventive care.

SOT, SASLOW

managed care organizations have certain criteria that they're evaluated by and one of those are how many of their patients are get pap tests, one concern is that they're getting higher scores because they're reaching more women.. even tho some of those women don't need a pap test still some doctors say despite all this, they'll continue to do pap smears on women who've had hysterectomies. they say it's the annual pap smear that keeps women coming back for their annual visits, even if their cervix is no longer there.

[SUPER=07-Joel's Take: 7 out of 10]


((Fahrenheit 9/11 (Lion's Gate Films) Review by: Joel Sink
Michael Moore's feature "Fahrenheit 9/11" is a compelling film, but not one without questions. Is it a documentary? Is this film just Moore's attempt to make sure George W. isn't elected for a second term? Who knew there was so much unflattering video footage of George W. and his advisors?
Fahrenheit 9/11 begins with the media coverage of the presidential election. As we move forward to September 11, 2001, the screen goes black. We hear the unmistakable sound of a jet plane flying over followed by an explosion. Then a second jet and a second explosion. From this point on, the film follows the President and his administration on a wild ride from the invasion of Iraq to a tense interview with a mother who's son was killed in the conflict. There are comedic images and horrifying images presented here. This film earned an "R" rating apparently for a brief string of expletives (no, they didn't come out of Dick Cheney's mouth). The images here are possibly more intense than those aired on most news shows but not really anything I wasn't expecting.
I'm not going to get into the controversy of whether this is a legitimate story or not. Fahrenheit 9/11 kept my attention and walked a fine line between overwhelming me with disturbing images and, at times, making me chuckle with it's wicked sense of humor. Regardless of which side of the fence you are on, go to see the movie and decide for yourself. If there is a message that you should take away, it's that we all have the responsibility to watch and listen to what is offered up to us, ask questions and make up our own minds. It's your freedom, exercise it.
Joe's take: 7 out of 10 Rated: R))
