    For kicks I googled the number one word combination, chose the first ad, and I was met with this tidbi:.

    “Mesothelioma is a form of malignant cancer caused by toxic asbestos exposure and the estimated number of recently diagnosed patients in Connecticit mushrooms more each year.”

    (Bold emphasis added by me.)

    Yup, just what I need, a personal injury lawyer who can’t be bothered to spell my state’s name correctly.

    How does this work? If I search on “ameriquest mortgage” does google make $38? Does ameriquest get billed for it?

    I heard on NPR a couple of weeks ago at the major fraud that has been going on with lawyers canvassing the public about Asbestosis, and then “diagnosing” the same people with Silicosis to get another lawsuit out of it since the lung x-rays on both conditions are very similar.
