Fill 'Er Up With Human Fat -
For a time, Beverly Hills doctor Craig Alan Bittner turned the fat he removed from patients into biodiesel that fueled his Ford SUV and his girlfriend's Lincoln Navigator. - Comments
Lincoln (aka Ford) has never built a diesel-powered Navigator, and the only diesel SUV ever built by the Blue Oval was the Excursion - not a lot of those in California. This story sounds like a bunch of BS invented by a shady doctor who was throwing his medical waste into the trash, but he needed to explain where it was going since he didn't pay for medical waste pick-up. Why don't you do some research instead of reprinting some AP story? Saying "the investigation may go nowhere" is lazy reporting - the doc can still be prosecuted, and may even be eligible for extradition - but Peter C. Beller was apparently happy to think up a "witty" headline and use cruise control for the rest of the article.
