Nutcase of the Month


COLUMBUS, Ohio – A chiropractor who claims he can treat anyone by reaching back in time to when an injury occurred has attracted the attention of state regulators.

The Ohio State Chiropractic Board, in a notice of hearing, has accused James Burda of Athens of being “unable to practice chiropractic according to acceptable and prevailing standards of care due to mental illness, specifically, Delusional Disorder, Grandiose Type.”

Burda denied that he is mentally ill. He said he possesses a skill he discovered by accident while driving six years ago.

I LOVE THIS GUY! Check out his website, too, before he goes to jail or the looney bin. His whole deal–especially his wacky made-up word “bahlaqueem”–remind me of The Fermata, one of the funniest books ever written.

    Why don’t you give him a try before verbally frying him ?
    If you or any of your relatives or friends have a problem, experiment.
    He does say that his first treatment is free.
    Then post the results.

  3. @ Jimmy—I think trying out it is quite unrealistic?

    God The Fermata was awful, though I continued to use the term for years afterward in different contexts. How dreadful it must be to must be to make sex with the creepy, puerile Nicolson Baker.
