Here goes another unintended consequence for those trying to make laws. Most of you are somewhat familiar with Americans With Disabilities Act. Some may not be aware that having an alcohol or drug addiction is considered a disability. Now, take the insanity one step forward.

I can't give any details, but yesterday, I found out a physician who is a multiple relapsed alcoholic, can not be fired from their group. Because they have a protected disability. This group essentially has to wait for an error (possibly fatal error) to occur. So now to catch this error, someone has to go around and double check everything this person does. So you have two people doing the work of one.
