A Fine Line Between Stupid And Clever

Sure Am Glad I Haven’t Gotten A Shot Lately

We seem to have an epidemic here in Vegas.

And it’s really bad.

How does this happen in 2008? Reusing needles? I don’t know if it’s a local phenomenon, but it wouldn’t surprise me. Some of you know I’m not too crazy about living in Las Vegas. As practically a native, (aside from an eight year sojourn in L.A., I’ve been here since I was 10) I’ve seen this town more than double it’s population in only 15 years. That’s insane. Our infrastructure is stretched to breaking point all the time.

Is this haphazard medical nightmare a result of that? I don’t know, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it was. This city has a transient nature. About 6000 people move here a month, but about 3000 leave. Many new arrivals find themselves with sudden gambling and drug addictions. I’m sure doctors and medical workers are no different.

There’s also a ton of unscrupulous “entrepreneurs” and businesses that set up shop quickly to make a fast buck in the frenzy, including medical centers.

There’s gonna be a legal shitstorm that could be unprecedented. Just one of these clinics had 40,000 some odd patients that may have been infected by Hepatitis or HIV.

This is some very serious shit.

Update:

Enas Yorls dad is on the list to be tested.

Go and wish he and his dad luck, and say a prayer if you’re so inclined.
