From a friend of Hunting For Thompson comes this open letter from America’s healers, titled: A Letter to Our Patients in the Trump Era. Authored by The Social Justice Coalition of the Cambridge Health Alliance and signed by over 1,460 healthcare professionals. It is well worth the read. They are concerned about what happens after the inauguration of President-elect Trump on January 20th, 2016.  Here’s the opening lines:

In this new and uncertain time in American history, we healthcare professionals feel a special responsibility. We strive to keep our clinical judgment unclouded by our political persuasions, yet we cannot help but see the manifestations of our society’s ills in our everyday practice. For our patients, poverty, violence, and marginalization are not mere abstractions but instead harsh realities. As a result, we feel compelled to act and advocate against any threat to our patients’ well-being.1 (full letter linked below).

John has largely traveled through life as a single and childless rolling stone, collecting little moss. He has been employed in numerous industries: first as a KFC dishwasher, then a Red Lion busboy, followed by soda jerking for Dairy Queen. All of that occurred before Uncle Sam whispered in his ear and he donned the olive drab green as a soldier in the U.S. Army. After that non Yankee Doodle Dandy duty was over, he attempted a career in entertainment, performing comedy and magic. When those opportunities disappeared, John reappeared in the transportation industry as a taxi and truck driver. He's been a barkeep, a hotel manager, a street performer, a professional student, a business manager, a dispatcher, an oil field professional, and an IT/IS professional; He's even been a procurer of substances. John developed and maintains both HuntingForThompson.com and HALLESQUE.com. All of this basically makes him an omnipotent . . . (in his own mind, which, as he says: "Is all that counts").
