If you are American, you probably know much
more about this issue than i do; it is all over
the net and it is highly controversial, as
well as the appointment of the draconian
Dr. Satel; i am not sure where things stand now,
but these centres were at risk of closure.
In Quebec, CANADA we have CLSC's -- which are
centres spread throughout the local communities,
where people can go for immediate assistance or
call; we are planning to have them open 24 hours
per day, money permitting, thereby taking the
load off the hospital emergency staff.
I have benefited greatly from their assistance.
As for Dr. Satel, well, i know i have a big
mouth but somebody told me that if i don't have
anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
That may have been good advice for one or our
politicians today who called President Bush a
"moron" - the diplomatic balance is at stake now
and she is being severely reprimanded with
a bronzed plaque of "The Bill of Rights".
