Chief Justice Roberts Hospitalised After Seizure

On Monday, Chief Justice Roberts had a seizure while on vacation in Maine.  He fell onto a dock and was hospitalised afterwards. Tests do not reveal the cause of the seizure, although he had suffered a similar episode in 1993.



  1. I suffered two seizures of unknown origins when I was ten. I got stuck on nasty meds that turned me into a fat lazy slob and got off them three years later. When I got off the phenobarbital my brain scan (EEG) was still abnormal, but I haven’t had a seizure since.

    Hey I saw two stories I would love to see you blog on, here are the links…

    “Remember the mammoths, say the clean-cut organisers at the youth camp’s mass wedding. “They became extinct because they did not have enough sex. That must not happen to Russia”.

    Obediently, couples move to a special section of dormitory tents arranged in a heart-shape and called the Love Oasis, where they can start procreating for the motherland.”

    Don’t you think America needs a similar program? HA!

    And this doozy….

    “Transit workers are installing speakers this week to pump classical music from Seattle’s KING-FM into the Tacoma Mall Transit Center. The tactic is designed to disperse young criminals who make drug deals at the bus stop or use public transportation to circulate between the mall and other trouble-prone places.”

    Yeah, dealing drugs is unpleasant, but does classical music really that unpleasant to the ears of young thugs?

  2. I so hope this is just another freakish occurrence with the Chief Justice. Maybe it was something he ate? Hopefully it has passed.

    On the other hand, I am shocked that TT’s brain is abnormal? Liberals should be so abnormal as the great TT.

  3. Why do I have to blog them? HARRUMPH!


    I, too, hope that he will do well. Two seizures pretty much makes him an epileptic. There are good meds for it these days, such as Tegetrol. As I understand it, the big problem with seizures is that the person can a) injure himself when he loses control (such as when driving a car or by falling down); or b) he can get stuck in the seizure and not wake up.

    It would be nice if liberals were all like TT – after all, we wouldn’t have liberals, now would we? :)

  4. Blogged this issue a bit more thoroughly at Dubyanell.

    It’s really appalling, the way the Leftist blogosphere is rejoicing in his illness.
