A Long Island doctor whose wife had an affair is asking her to return the kidney he gave her — or at least the cash equivalent — in everyone’s favorite kidney story of the day.

People are haggling over whether doctors would actually perform such a reverse transplant, whether it’s ethical, whether the spurned husband is crazy to make this request, blah blah blah. But I’ve looked at maybe fifty different versions of this story, reported all over — and I’m still waiting to find *one* that considers this sad story from the point of view of the kidney.

Come on, people. It’s a custody dispute. Shouldn’t someone at least *ask* the kidney where it wants to live?

I’m amazed I have to point this stuff out ….
