Attention ... All personnel ... Incoming Wounded ...



Oh, hello, Hawkeye, hello, Trapper, sure, I'll have one, I shouldn't, but what's the difference now, huh? ...

What? That wasn't M*A*S*H* I somehow dropped into?
No no, just a visit to RCH emerg. Heavens to Murgatroyd, patients everywhere, I mean in stretchers, beds, chairs, sick and injured everywhere, and one doctor and a couple of nurses trying to be everywhere and help everyone.
Endless money for the Olympic boondoggle, but an extra doc or a couple more nurses in the ERs?
Not a priority like pumping up the real estate profits of Poole et al.
Or do you still doubt that's what its all about?

Holy S**t!!!

Great find, I never read the Straight. I'm going to post this link up on my site as well.

Ties right into why there isn't a toll booth on that farce of a highway. Wait until everyone realizes that they wont even be able to use it for the duration of the Games...

Just re-read this- I hope all is well with you and yours, and that it was not yourself that required assistance!!! Be well.

Thanks for your kind concern, Laila, just the carcass showing the mileage a bit, a nuisance more than anything but thanks.
As for the Straight, I've read it since its inception. I may not be ideologically in lockstep with them (fer sure) but I like reading stuff by people I disagree with, keeps one open to having one's mind changed and besides, when it comes to Gordie Campbell and his Olympic swindle the Straight and I are singing off the same page.
