    I worked at a small town on the border with Mexico, where you could go several days without a call. And then there were days, while you were taking a patient to the hospital, 80 miles away, there were two more calls waiting for you to come back to town to take them to the hospital. Or we'd...

    And that is exactly why when the Navy tried to send me to Pearl Harbor, I fought it tooth and nail. After a couple of months, where are you going to go that you haven't been to a couple dozen times already?
