With friends like this, who needs enemies?

From the "yeah, right" department comes word that Dr. Steven Armus, a Kenosha dermatologist, says he was transporting nearly one ounce of cocaine to help out some friends.

Now folks, this is a 48-year-old man, not a 16-year-old boy. You might expect a stupid explanation like that from a teenager.

And Armus had more than four grand on him at the time. He said it was for hsi vacation. Has he ever heard of American Express? Or Visa?

Not to mention that Armus first said he doesn't do coke because he's a doctor and then admitted he'd recently used some.

Armus, who is facing a criminal charge of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, is, of course, presumed innocent under the law but you have to shake your head at his explanations.

The sad reality of this, folks, is that drug abuse isn't just for poor folks in the 'hood. (Since Eugene Kane, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel columnist in charge of victim mentality, missed this one I thought I'd say something he might say and, had Eugene done so, he would have been correct -- for a change.)

Sad. Now I have to find a new dermatologist. Hope he gets the help that he apparently needs.

I used to work for Dr Armus, and this is sad news as he was a wonderful physician and took very good care of his patients and was always concerned about them.

I do not think you could find a better dermatologist.

Do not pre-judge, he is still an excellant Dr. If I had a problem that required a dermatologist, he is the Dr I would want to go too.

Now the Doc is indicted today on federal drug charges on 5.5 kilos of cocaine. This guy should lose his license and go to prison. He is not a 16 year old boy, but sure looks like he may distribute to one. Bye Bye Doc
