I have been trying since February 5th to reach my cardiologist by phone. All I get is - "the lines are busy, someone will be with you shortly." Nuh uh - no one gets back at all, let alone shortly. I've called every day, 3 x's a day, always the same message. I sent a letter 10 days ago asking for someone to call me so I could make an appointment. Still no response. This Thursday we will be in the area. I'll stop in and try very hard to remain calm, and maybe just maybe I'll finally get an appointment. They told me when I was there last to call the 1st of February to make an appointment for March. Just following orders.

This is the vent thread, isn't it. Steam coming out of the top of my head.

Strange way for a Dr. to retain his customer base.

Be well in spite of him!

Florida follow-up....

Congrats to Dicks Sporting Goods for taking a stand that may impact their sales bottom line.

Won't sell any AR-15s
Won't sell guns to anybody under 21.
Won't sell high capacity magazines.
Won't sell bump stocks.

Of course nobody knows what, if any, effect this will have on the big picture, but it beats the heck out of forming another committee and discussing it some more.

Step in the right direction. It's what a lot of people think should be implemented.

Love the fact that other states are asking Delta to consider them as its new headquarters, since some politicos in Georgia are threatening to punish the company for discontinuing its NRA discounts.
Maybe I should have posted this in Happiness instead? :P :lol:

I love it when things get started ahead of schedule :D

Seriously. Delta's main hub being Atlanta has been a huge deal for Georgia and THIS is how some of Georgia's politicians have chosen to thank them? I hope Delta doesn't cave on the whole NRA discount thing and actually does move to a new state.
