MALPRACTICE: Egyptian authorities say one mystery about King Tut is now officially solved: the boy king was not murdered. It seems Tut broke his leg and the leg became infected, thereby hastening his death some three thousand years ago at the age of nineteen. A lawyer for the Tut family announced shortly thereafter a class action malpractice lawsuit against the Egyptian Medical Association on behalf of Pharoahs from the Scorpion King to Cleopatra, charging that members of the association provided the Egyptian rulers with inadequate care and that the association covered up a two thousand year trail of incompetence. The lawsuit, filed in Mississippi yesterday, seeks as yet unspecified damages.
