No good deed goes unpunished

In case you missed it this weekend on This American Life: listen to this astonishing story of two Texas nurses who below the whistle on a corrupt, incompetent doctor and soon found themselves under arrest.  Here is the description from the TAL website:

 "In a small west Texas town called Kermit, two nurses were accused of harassment after they complained to the medical board that a doctor was putting patients in danger. The nurses were fired and then arrested, facing ten years in prison. Reporter Saul Elbein found that a group of powerful men in Kermit went to extreme and sometimes ridiculous lengths to try to bring down these nurses. Saul wrote a version of this story for the Texas Observer."

Listen to it here. Or read it in the Texas Observer.
