    Well, that was interesting.
    I have an old girlfriend who lives in Lubbock. She’s a nurse that works as a patient care coordinator. They have a connected organization in McAllen, along the border with Mexico. She’s told me that yeah, the hospitals down there *are* overrun. Ambulances circle the block, waiting for a bed to open up. There ain’t no care at all on the south side, so people come north to cough on you.

    She’s told me that there are some significant differences in the workforce in McAllen versus Lubbock. Quality of work and ethics are quite a bit lesser on the border. She and I have a shorthand phrase when talking about such subjects: McAllen culture.

    Not a bad riff for this day and age. I got me thinking that’

    There are the times to try men’s soles not little naughty Nike girly walks.
    Give me liberty and give me Def Leppard with a healthy helping of both Dylons.
    Fire at Will, and Phil as well as the house atop the hill where they write that Marxist swill.
    Oh say, can you see, nothing but graffiti?
    This land is their land, unless we take a stand.
    The herd is rot around the world.
    Gory gory hell’s for you,
    All for one and
    One for the money.
    Two for the bow
    Three to hold
    Fire ‘till you hear
    The fright of their cries.
    Speak softly
    but carry.

    Fire ‘till you hear
    The fright of their cries.

    Lost me at “Listen Bitchez”…part of our cultural decay has been the assimilation of hip-hop banter into everyday speech. Patrick Henry’s original version is just fine, thank you.

    I, too, had to search for the original version. It’s a shame that we were only taught the last line in school, when there’s so much more to it. Well worth a read.
