Diesel fuel

For years we've bemoaned on these pages the lack of initiative of automobile manufacturers in bringing the same diesel-engine efficiency to the United States that exists in Europe, where mid-size cars often get close to 50 miles to the gallon while getting more than adequate power and a lack of the bothersome noise that the first generation of American auto diesels produced.

As things get worse

As the days, weeks and years go by, it seems as if the ways of the world and bloody actions of people get worse and worse. A lot of this comes from the laws of the land. If you only think and remember, the government banned prayer from functions, sports and schools; tied the hands of parents from disciplining their children; and places outrageous taxes and fines on everything.

A happy, satisfied patient

Last week, I had surgery at KershawHealth. In light of the recent intense media reporting about problems at KershawHealth, I was anxious to see firsthand what impact it may have had on the day-to-day operation. Well, it was better than I expected … a lot better! From admission to discharge and each step in between, I was treated by a team of angels. They were respectful, motivated, professional, capable and caring. I could not have asked for better care. KershawHealth and my angels occupy a special place in my heart.
