Cigar time on county dime  

Jump to full article: Chicago Sun-Times, 2012-04-28
Author: PATRICK REHKAMP AND ROBERT HERGUTH Better Government Association

Intro:

But one veteran investigator added something else to his job description: smoking for hours on end inside a Bridgeport cigar shop while on the taxpayers’ clock.

Now he’s out of a job, and reforms are said to be under way in the 130-person unit that, sources say, long has been known as a place to coast, especially for those with clout.

An investigation by the Better Government Association and FOX Chicago News found Robert L. Thomas — a retired Chicago cop hired by the state’s attorney’s office in 1997 — spent large parts of his days hanging out at Gianni Cigars Etc. at 31st and Canal when he was supposed to be working. (When the shop moved a couple of blocks away this month, he started showing up there, too.) . . .

So who was Thomas’ direct boss?

It was a state’s attorney employee named Frank Cupello, whom FOX and the BGA profiled some weeks back for allegedly engaging in vote fraud — regularly voting from Elmwood Park even though he lived for decades in Lake County. Cupello has close ties to Elmwood Park Mayor Pete Silvestri, who also is a Cook County commissioner.

Cupello gave Thomas good job performance ratings, marking on one review that Thomas is “exceeding expectations” when it comes to “time and resource utilization,” according to a copy obtained under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.

Doctors back denial of treatment for smokers and the obese  

Survey finds 54% of doctors think the NHS should have the right to withhold non-emergency treatment
Jump to full article: The Observer (uk), 2012-04-28

Intro:

A majority of doctors support measures to deny treatment to smokers and the obese, according to a survey that has sparked a row over the NHS's growing use of "lifestyle rationing".

Some 54% of doctors who took part said the NHS should have the right to withhold non-emergency treatment from patients who do not lose weight or stop smoking. Some medics believe unhealthy behaviour can make procedures less likely to work, and that the service is not obliged to devote scarce resources to them.

However, senior doctors and patient groups have voiced alarm at what they call "blackmailing" of the sick, and denial of their human rights.

Doctors.net.uk, a professional networking site, found that 593 (54%) of the 1,096 doctors who took part in the self-selecting survey answered yes when asked: "Should the NHS be allowed to refuse non-emergency treatments to patients unless they lose weight or stop smoking?"

One doctor said that denying in-vitro fertilisation to childless women who smoked was justified because it was only half as successful for them. Another said the NHS was right to expect an obese patient or alcoholic to change their behaviour before they underwent liver transplant surgery.
