The comedians benefit from a day’s delay, and it showed.
jclark's insight:

It is truely something to appreciate when someone makes a heartfelt speech about your city/state, especially on a show that jokes around about it a lot.

The couple filed two lawsuits that allege the defendants violated the child's 14th Amendment rights by performing the sexual assignment surgery on their adopted child who was then 20 months old.
jclark's insight:

"A Columbia couple is suing the Medical University of South Carolina, Greenville Hospital System and the S.C. Department of Social Services after a sexual-assignment surgery was performed on a then-20-month-old child born with both male and female reproductive organs."

 

The thought of this happening to someone is horrifying, especially to a 20 month old. Why did the doctors even think about doing something like this?
