not trying to use the "gay" card at all just saying he and Brett were of the same importance not one above the other so why make a big deal of Brett dying and not Robbie!?
OK, poor Robbie. I wish he hadn't died!

Why does everybody in Arkansas whine some much. Woe is me. If there is a medical emergency load the patient up in your car and drive them to the nearest hospital. Freakn entitlement generation. Always expecting the governments to take care of them. What the hell did people do in the old days when they didn't have ambulances...I know, they all sat around the campfire watching their loves ones die...Woe is me, Woe is me....Whoosh, enough said.....
Well said Harry! My hat off to you. I know where I am from we have a little thing called PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY! We identify a need and then we take care of it. We don't wait around for the government or even our neighbors to come to our aid. Do people in Arkansas even own vehicles?

My question is why wasn't he med flighted to Little Rock? I've known of many patients having to be med flighted from the hospital in Clinton to one in Little Rock because of Clinton's not being equipped to handle.

I'm from the Clinton area and know Clinton hospital is not equipped to handle certain situations, what was the reason the attending physician didn't have him med flighted or have a family member take him by car to Little Rock. Sometimes it's best just to bypass the hospital there and keep going.
