No sympathy for inmate in request for sex change
Carole K. Hoch writes: It is time for the US Court of Appeals to put to rest inmate Michelle Kosilek’s outrageous request for a sex change operation. Charities are stretched to the limit, and some distributed chickens instead of turkeys for Thanksgiving to deserving recipients. Kosilek, a convicted murderer, does not warrant special treatment over and above those people who, despite their best efforts, cannot make ends meet.
