      Writing to provide comments on the ongoing vapidness by our city & county “lawmakers” over the hospital situation.

      Bullet points:

      — which of our “lawmakers” has a PhD in Hospital Administration?
      — if a new fire truck is needed for an 8 story hospital, take some of the $30 million & purchase 1 or 2
      — who are those “concerned citizens” who do not want the hospital to be anywhere but on land that they own. Have they been outed & identified?
      — after our lawmakers get the $30 million & purchase 1 or 2 fire trucks, how about returning the remaining monies to the taxpayers?
      — everywhere in Oxford has traffic during football weekends
      — what makes Mayor Patterson a hero by calling Baptist “cowardly.” Pull up your pants, stop the good ‘ol boy stuff, & make a decision. That’s what you get paid to do. Won’t call you, Sir, what you called Baptist.
      — let Baptist corcern themselves where & how to build a hospital. One need only to look @ Baptist DeSoto. The construction of the new hospital, no matter where sited, will provide jobs for our citizenry for the next few years.
      — lastly, if it were my money & I were being run around by some know-nothings about hospitals, I would build it in Batesville or Columbus. Maybe then our “lawmakers” would not need to worry about football weekend traffic & they could drive those additional miles for top notch medical care that they caused to leave our city.
