The Charlotte Observer
The tattoo on Richard Jenkins' left shin is of a black widow spider. Below the spider tattoo is a circular scar, smaller than a pencil eraser.

Stethoscopes may spread bacteria
HealthDay News
Researchers have found that the diaphragm of a stethoscope can become filthy with antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as potentially deadly MRSA. They discovered that a diaphragm will pick up more bacteria during a patient examination than any part of the doctor's hand except the fingertips. The tube of the stethoscope also can become laden with bacteria, and the contamination level of both the diaphragm and the tube increases with the amount of bacteria on the doctor's fingertips, the study said.
