On occasion my father told the story of being on board the USS Saint Louis and surviving a Kamikaze Attack. — In the 1950s One of his hobbies was assembling plastic naval vessels with air plane glue. That’s usually when he retold the story. Not until the Splintered webs did the event become concrete in my mind. My mother was working at the Eastern Aircraft Plant, Riveting, while Dad served. Today is the 69th anniversary of that event. The folks stayed married forever and parented four children. Dad was never a 'Sad Old Man.' We busted the retired Steel Worker out of Francis Scott Key medical Center AMA in 1982 Because we were not happy with the care. After a his first heart Attack in 1984 he was taken back to the same facility. After a week he was transported to John Hopkins, [That dude gots a lot of money] where they put him on a tread mill and gave him another heart attack, for all intents and purposes, killing him. I had been working in the District of Columbia at the time but got back to Baltimore in time to say good bye. After his death the family was gathered in a room to be told that everything was normal. It was years later that I learned of the Stress Test.
In the mean Time -- In between time -- So many underpaid young Americans in Retail are turning into SAD Blatant Petty Thieves like contractors. They seem to be targeting "Sad Old People". Caveat Emptor. Always count your change and get a receipt: Rite Aid, MacDonald's, Subway, Safeway, Target, so forthand so on. -->>L.T.Rhyme
