Saga of Anil Potti continues

There are three important developments this weekend in the Anil Potti Mess.

First, Sunday evening CBS News will devote the first segment of 60 Minutes to the scandal.

Second, for the first time, a Duke official has conceded that Potti's patients were exposed to great risk by his clinical trials. That is, by his experiments on human patients.
