Be Careful What You Sign

From the Appleton (Wis.) Post-Crescent of May 24, 1920:

Geneva.—"They have pretty nearly convinced me I'm dead," mourns Paul Bergot, French soldier here. He was reported killed in action by the French army. One day a gendarme called on him and he signed a paper he later found was his own death certificate. Now he is fighting in court to prove he is alive. "We have his word for it he is dead," says the government.

To quote Bud Abbott, "Are you a doctor?! Have you a license to practice medicine?!" What qualifies this man to say he's still living? Perhaps if he were to acquire a medical degree and write a paper for a n established medical journal to submit his findings for peer review, then, perhaps, he might have a case. It would be a sad day when governments and the medical establishment took the word of a citizen over than of "experts"!

He might have trouble getting admitted to medical school, being a corpse and all. Maybe he could enroll as a cadaver.

It's called working from the ground up.
