    Maybe they removed the part of his brain that makes you want to stay in a place where they are going to operate on your brain. Did anyone ever think of that?

    I wonder how much of my tax money went for his free operation.

      That isn’t always the case. Parkland is also a trauma hospital. They often take seriously injured people there. That’s where they took President Kennedy when he was shot. They’ve also taken people hurt in a airplane crashes there. Also, even if someone is having to use it because it is a county hospital, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are an illegal alien. I had to use the JPS system once when I was out of work, and I was born and raised in this country. I also know someone who lost his insurance through his work, and he had to use JPS.
