31 November 2015 Dr Joel Joseph's Exhibit 2 of Items Not Returned. The second page is especially good: Who generates 51,000 vaccine reminders by hand from paper files?

Notably missing from his list is a Cobray M-11 9mm pistol, serial 89-00032, seized from a shelf in Dr Joseph's bedroom. It's a spectacularly inaccurate weapon, much more dangerous to bystanders than the intended target. The latest registration belongs to a "Edward J. Cruz" and not "Dr Joel Joseph". Curious that...

1 December 2015 The same list trimmed of pure nonsense by his attorney: Movant's List of Unreturned Items. It's still mostly fictional. What veterinary practice in the world keeps over a liter of ketamine in stock? In won't fit into Wise Owl's drug box.
