The MVNHS© gets one right (Finally!)

In an effort to keep abreast of the sagging fortunes of the MVNHS©, Bob offered this tip:

"A 58-year-old British transsexual Tuesday lost her court battle over the state-funded health service's refusal to pay for a breast enlargement."

As deflated as I'm sure she (he?) must feel over this turn of events, I have to say that the "local National Health Service branch's refusal to pay for breast augmentation surgery, at a cost of £2,300 ($3,300)" strikes me as fitting, given that "human rights violations" aside, this kind of surgery would almost never pass the "medical necessity" test.

In related news, the patient, currently known only as "C," was also denied her (his?) request for a name change to "DD."
