New, 2 comments

In an interview with Katie Couric for 60 Minutes last night, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel talked about his days a teenage Arby's employee, and the time he sliced off his middle finger while cleaning a roast beef slicer. Always the resourceful one, Emanuel decided to dress his wound himself. Notes Emanuel: "I ended up with two blood infections, two bone infections, gangrene, two week in the hospital, a 105 fever, and was about one day away from looking at the other side of the ledger."
