Long Island surgeon Richard Batista gave his wife the gift of life when he donated one of his kidneys to her. But she enjoyed that life a little too much, and maybe had an affair with her physical therapist. So now he's demanding $1.5 million, which is the value of the kidney according to a medical expert he had appraise it. The physical therapist, who denies the affair, sums it up: "I feel bad for her because he's a wackadoo." [NYP]
