SPH board meeting tonight
It's one thing to be cut off from essential services by the unpredictable fury of nature, but quite another when it's done by the South Peninsula Hospital Operating Board without medical treatment.

This fascist reliance on executive sessions has gone far enough in this community. That is our hospital. Our only hope is through the SPH service area board, our elected officials, who meet next at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, in the first floor conference room.

Dr. Paul Sayer may be unorthodox, but he's my surgeon. I trust him, and he is certified (and why is he the only certified doctor and surgeon down here?).

I'm frightened, and I want answers. You may not care much about annexation, but you sure better care about your tax paid health-care provider. I'll see you all there, 6 p.m. Nov. 7.
