Licenses? We don' need no stinkin' licenses!

At least this careless physician's patients aren't likely to sue her:

A Travis County medical examiner who performed dozens of autopsies last year with a delinquent license said Thursday she never received a mailed postcard notifying her that the license needed renewal.

"If they indeed sent a postcard notifying us to renew online, it was not received by me, and I'm terribly sorry that it did not enter my thought process during that time," said Dr. Elizabeth Peacock, Travis County deputy medical examiner.

Peacock's annual medical license expired in February but wasn't renewed until June. She performed autopsies for 11 weeks with a delinquent license, including those for 11 of the 19 immigrants who died after being locked in a trailer found in Victoria.
