Starner Jones, MD. What a Bozo..!

Please meet Dr Starner Jones from Jackson , Mississippi.
This is his short 2-paragraph letter to the White House.
From: Starner Jones, MD
To: The White House, USA

I am a seventh generation Mississippian and wanted to come back here after going somewhere else for college and medical school. My extracurricular interests are golf, hunting, fishing and college football.

Dear Sirs:

"During my last night's shift in the ER, I had the pleasure of evaluating a patient with an expensive shiny gold tooth, multiple elaborate expensive tattoos, a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and a new cellular telephone equipped with her favorite R&B tune for a ringtone. Glancing over the chart, one could not help noticing her payer status: Medicaid. She smokes more than one costly pack of cigarettes every day and, somehow, still has money to buy beer.

And our Congress expects me to pay for this woman's health care? Our nation's health care crisis is not a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. It is a crisis of culture - a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on vices while refusing to take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. A culture that thinks "I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me". Life is really not that hard. Most of us reap what we sow. Don't you agree?

Jackson, MS

What an @ss whole.
It's horrifying to me that this fool treated an ER patient then stabbed her in the back by writing this kind of letter. He has no idea what he is talking about, AFAIAC he is a drooling fool.

BTW, his own hospital clientele only rate him 2 out of 4 stars
(1 star = 'poor'). Should we guess why????

What follows is my response to his ill-advised letter-

I think we should give our pal starner about 30 more years to grow up and fall out of love with himself, and by then he should be singing a different tune (probably solo).

He had no business writing a letter like that, which could potentially affect many thousands of lives of disabled folk, in addition to the life of his incompetently-judged patient. It's clear that he doesn't even have enough sense to be embarrassed of himself.

I wouldn't be patting him on the back. I'd be slapping his face to wake him up.

The real crisis is that people like this self-important bozo can't see what's wrong with what he wrote. He actually had the time to lick a stamp and still didn't catch it, for God's sake.
Now, do you want me to tell you how I *really* feel?
