Episode of House MD comes to life

If you’ve ever seen Fox’s hit medical drama “House MD”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412142/, you know that every installment is just an exercise in further improbability than the previous episode (a patient’s skull explodes in the most recent episode). But occasionally reality is just as strange. Near the end of the first season, House treats a malnourished baby whose vegan parents are unwittingly starving it by keeping the infant on the same strict diet as they are. I thought the whole thing was a bit contrived, but apparently not. Yesterday, Lamont Thomas and Jade Sanders, vegan parents, were convicted of gross neglect and sentenced to life terms in prison. As always, there’s more at “the BBC”:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/6642543.stm. Also if you’re interested, the episode in question was “season 1, episode 18”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0606013/
