Sorry. Can't really ask the question in any other way that gets to the point.
Between this story and this one, and this one, you have to wonder when the Royal Fucking of our Veterans will end.
If you didn't know, or you've never been there, The Lakeside facility was once the premier VA hospital in the United States, with staff sharing duties across the street at Northwestern.
Some of the best doctors and the brightest interns in the world were accessible for free to our veterans. No more. Now, if you live in the third-largest city on the continent, you have to wait for a bus and get hauled through gangland to go to the clinic for a blood screening.
