Saturday, my Mom fell down and we had to take her to a hospital which had a CT scan (she is alright, yay!).
However, factor this in, here is a map of where California General hospital is:

While my Mom was waiting to use the CT scanner, there were multiple trauma patients coming in every hour. These trauma patients didn't suffer from a pain in the foot or a headache, most had a GSW or knife wound. And lots and lots of people who tried suicide.
Not a nice place.
Luckily, while I was keeping my Mom's mind active and busy (until I knew what the CT scan said on how bad it was -- again, she's doing OK), we made friends with some of the fine members of the LAPD Newton division.
Here is that area on a crime map:
[Now, cometh the Political Rant:]
Check the crime map on all areas that vote Democrat. For a Party that says "They care about the people," it was a Republican Activist asking "How do we make things better?" on a Saturday night. When there is a dearth of ideas (i.e. One Party System), people's lives become expendable. Don't believe me? Go to California General on a Saturday Night and tell me that lives under Democrats are getting better.
[Political rant is over.]
Finally, thanks to all the doctors and nurses who helped my Mom.
It was a long evening/morning -- I'm still trying to catch up.
The 9/11 post is next.
Thanks for waiting.
