29. I see the update now in the post. I'm so confused
Edited on Thu Sep-03-09 12:30 PM by bear425
about where the biter and the bitee stand on the issue. But, I do know that it's effed up either way.

edit: earlier edit on post said this:

A scuffle ensued. And the pro-protester had a finger bitten off. (UPDATE: 8:18 a.m. Later reports indicate the 65-year-old man was the biter and the finger was younger.)

Then it was changed to this:

A scuffle ensued. And the pro-protester had a finger bitten off. (Updated at 8:18 a.m.: Conflicting later reports indicate the biter was a healthcare proponent and the now nine-fingered man an opponent.)

I happened to still have the original in an open window...
