A damn shame

From CNN

LOS ANGELES, California — Comic actor Harvey Korman has died at 81, according to the UCLA Medical Center.

Harvey Korman’s death comes after complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Korman died at the center four months after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

“It was a miracle in itself that he survived the incident at all. Everyone in the hospital referred to him as ‘miracle man’ because of his strong will and ability to bounce right back after several major operations,” said Korman’s daughter, Kate Korman. “Tragically, after such a hard-fought battle, he passed away.”

 

Thank you Harvey for some of the best moments I’ve had with my clothes on. The only shame of his life is that so many Washingtonians took him seriously as a role model. I’m going to show my old student ID at the movies in his honor.

Could you repeat that, sir?

More on healthcare aviation in Southwest Virginia

Just before this spring, I made a few observations on corporate healthcare and air superiority in southwest Virginia.

I’d like to give a gentleman identifying himself as a pilot with one of the helicopter services mentioned in the aforementioned post a forum today:

HEY DOUCHE BAG, I am a pilot on Wings X. We have six aircraft total and Wellmont just bought one which makes a total of seven, someone needs to get some facts straight before you puke out the mouth like this…. and just to wonder how stupid shit like this gets started…Thanks for nothing assbag!
*your daddy*

Comment by Lt. Matt Hughes — May 29, 2008 @ 12:12 am

And thanks for leaving a way to respond, Lt. Matt. I think the issue is MSHA vs. Wellmont in their never-ending quest to create a monopoly and that quest spilling over into Wise County. I don’t think I’ve questioned Wings Air Rescue’s motives, commitment to patient care, or quality of service. If you want to raise such questions, please feel free.
Personally, I’m glad that Wings has six helos, although that tidbit seems not to have made it in the local papers that I’ve seen. Whether those helos would all be available for a major Wise County medevac crisis is another issue of logisitics, however. I’m glad that Wellmont has a helo too. What it comes down to is that MSHA is trying to deny Wellmont the same internal fast-transport capability for its SWVA facilities that MSHA now enjoys.
And if I’m a douchebag for pointing out that issue, then thank you for your humanitarian spirit. And, if I have to go to a Wellmont facility over here and get transferred to a critical care facility, pass on my thanks to MSHA for making possible either the ambulance ride or the wait for a Virginia State Police helo.

Recommendation: If I were you, I’d do my level best to stay from between MSHA and Wellmont in their quest for market superiority. It hasn’t been pretty in Tennessee and it doesn’t look that great in southwest Virginia.

As I recall, the departing Wise County Administrator recently was quoted in a newspaper that he had concerns that Wellmont was either pushed or persuaded to back out of its request to operate a helo service at its southwest Virginia facilities. Would you like to take the opportunity to call him a douchebag as well?

No wonder healthcare issues leave a bad taste in the mouths of some local residents.

Incidentally, I can state with authority that Matt Hughes is, in fact, not ‘my daddy’ and that, genetically speaking, I am not a colostomy or enema bag nor am I compatible for use with Summer’s Eve or similar products.

  

You have a good day, Lt. Matt.

Another reason why Halliburton opened a dual headquarters in Dubai:

To avoid extradition or a well-deserved seizure and shutdown by the American people for what could be construed in many U.S. courts as negligent manslaughter?

“PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (CNN) — A highly decorated Green Beret, Staff Sgt. Ryan Maseth died a painful death in Iraq this year. He died not on the battlefield. He died in what should have been one of the safest spots in Iraq: on a U.S. base, in his bathroom . . . .

The water pump was not properly grounded, and when he turned on the shower, a jolt of electricity shot through his body and electrocuted him January 2 . . . .

Army documents obtained by CNN show that U.S.-paid contractor Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) inspected the building and found serious electrical problems a full 11 months before Maseth was electrocuted.

KBR noted “several safety issues concerning the improper grounding of electrical devices.” But KBR’s contract did not cover “fixing potential hazards.” It covered repairing items only after they broke down.

Only after Maseth died did the Army issue an emergency order for KBR to finally fix the electrical problems, and that order was carried out soon thereafter.

In an internal e-mail obtained by CNN, a Navy captain admits that the Army should have known “the extent of the severity of the electrical problems.” The e-mail then says the reason the Army did not know was because KBR’s inspections were never reviewed by a “qualified government employee.” . . .

KBR declined a CNN interview, but in an e-mail the company said it found “no evidence of a link between the work it has been tasked to perform and the reported electrocutions.” “

God forbid we should consider Halliburton and its subsidiary KBR as acting in selfish disregard of the interests of the American soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen that they have been contracted to support. After all, they  . . . .

bring fresh water to troops in bases overseas

serve hot meals in sanitary mess halls to troops

get fuel to our troops in the field.

F***in scumbags, and mudering scumbags at that.

Every day I get to drive by Halliburton natural gas exploration trucks driving through our region as if the Iraqi insurgents trying to blow up their convoys have somehow arrived in the U.S. I’ve been told that one Halliburton driver was instructed not to dodge oncoming traffic if it meant him being late to a job site. If true, it makes perfect sense given what this organization has managed to become – a perfect 21st-century example of the robber barons of old.

At least American soldiers can trust Iraqi insurgents and al Qaida to try and kill them. Halliburton does it effortlessly and under the guise of good old American patriotism

Adding to Archie’s stunning detective work, this may explain several things although this could be a copycat, based on some clues . . . .

that he didn’t get the 25 years for being a boy band creator.

Boy-band mogul Lou Pearlman sentenced to 25 years in federal prison (Orlando Sentinel)

“. . . Boy-band mogul Lou Pearlman was sentenced this morning to 25 years in federal prison for running a lengthy, systematic con that artificially inflated his net worth and cheated people out of $300 million . . . Pearlman, 53, was once the toast of Orlando. His financial empire once included popular musical acts the Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync; an airplane-charter business; and Church Street Station, an iconic piece of real estate in Orlando’s downtown.”

“On June 14, federal investigators tracked Pearlman down in the lush resort town of Bali, Indonesia, registered at a hotel under the name A. Incognito Johnson.”

Maybe he can form a new boy band in prison. He could start here.

One of the fundamental problems with commercial radio these days . . . .

is that you don’t hear enough of songs like these and in full length. Enjoy – I’m disgusted after realizing what a horrible time this country is going to have after the first Tuesday in November, and I could use the chill too.

Allman Brothers

Doobie Brothers
