Even More Swedish Meatball-Medicine

Looks like Sweden's still more competent fielding a Bikini Team than providing health care. Proving they're not sexist when it comes to denying care - the last few outings included abandoning a little girl and an old woman - Swedish bureauweenies have decided that a man whose legs have both been amputated may not have a "permanent" disability.

Who knew they'd grow back?!

Evert Stefansson sure didn't but "the local health authority remained "uncertain if the impairment was permanent." And so his request for a powered wheelchair has been denied.

Good thing that won't happen here, right?
