Healthcare begins to feel the econmic crisis

I saw this article on Cnn.com and it is from Time:

US Hospitals Feel Debt, Credit Troubles

Beaumont was even mentioned in this article and I knew they were having issues from friends that work there. In November we were told at U of M that they were starting to have problems and they are cutting non-patient care jobs as needed. As a nurse we think our job is safe but if things get rough enough then even our industry can feel it. The problem is that elective surgeries and elective diagnostic procedures are down but then these people show up later in the ER very sick and unable to pay. We will have to see what happens... Up until Christmas our unit was crazy busy with a full house and more patients needing to come in. Hopefully we will pick up again after the Christmas slow down.

Groundhog of Auto Industry

The US Senate has decided to skip a bailout for the auto industry.

I feel like I'm watching a six and twisted version of the Groundhog Day celebration, with the US Senate as Punxsutawney Phil. Can't you just see Governor Granholm standing on a throne of ice shouting:

"In a few days, the US Senate shall emerge from its burrow in Washington. If it sees its shadow and returns to its burrow without giving the auto makers a loan, I decree we shall have 6 more years of recession in Michigan!"

Rule one: Always check you have key

Detroit News: Dearborn police needed to free handcuffed wife after 'adult time'


1) Make sure you know where the key is BEFORE letting your significant other handcuff you to anything.

2) The cops were summoned at 7:15am. That means that either the couple oped for some early morning bondage (kinky) or she was handcuffed all night and they finally gave up at 7:15 in the morning. Which do you think is more likely?

3) Way to ruin a good thing dude. How long do you think it will be before this woman will EVER agree to handcuffing again?

MSU in Capital One Bowl

So its offical: MSU is going to the Capital One Bowl (a.k.a., the Citrus Bowl). I can see some pros and cons with that:


- New Years Day Bowl? Those are when REAL bowls are played!

- MSU gets $4.25 million just for showing up. That's not a bad deal.

- This is the same bowl UofM played in last year when they beat Florida.


- We play Georgia, a team that is nearly as good as Ohio State or Penn State.

- Unlike Big Ten teams, SEC teams typically don't mind running up the score. You think losing to Penn State 49-18 is bad? It could be 60+ with Georgia.
