You know what karma is; it's that concept by which if you live a good life, you're reborn as a golden cow, and if you're bad, you're liable to spend your next incarnation trapped in the body of a hideous predatory mantis who gets his head eaten by lady mantises with frightening breasts. In other words, you reap what you sow, and now the elevated blood pressure that Jack Thompson causes all of us gamers with his ignorant mouth-frothings is giving him a big bushel of reciprocal come-uppance.

GamePolitics.com is reporting this morning that dear Mr. Thompson is suffering from a stress-induced heart ailment, or so he wrote in a Federal District Court motion involved in his legal battle with the Florida Bar. From the filing:

Plaintiff, at 3 am this day, is suffering what he believes is arrhythmia, from which he has suffered previously, as well as chest pain. This may be a benign condition, or it may be serious. He has had other previous episodes like this induced by stress.

Plaintiff must try to see his cardiologist… to try to assess the problem. It is most likely stress-related by virtue of The Florida Bar’s demand that Thompson be psychiatrically/psychologically evaluated in violation of its own Rules.

... Aww. Let's all send him some flowers, kind wishes and candy -- POISON CANDY, that is.
