The Time Rahm Emanuel Sliced Off his Finger at Arby's

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."
