How right you are - my own state of CT is the perfect example; this is
the richest per capita state in the Union and yet we have 2 corners of
the state that are woefully underserved from the trauma viewpoint - so
much so that we joke abouyt driving extra-slowly so as never to get into
a wreck there!  And then there is the city where up to just recently,
there were 2 Level I centers just over a mile apart.  Tactical reasons?
Hell NO - purely political.  And that is, in my mind, far "worse" than
the tactical resourse maldistribution.  So Chuck, I guess what I am
saying is that what I was saying yesterday is that there are
generalities that one needs to look at - without needing to look at the
specifics in each case.  Simple, really.  'Cauase you and I are on the
same line here!

Take care,

Just  one thought, however.  What we have here in the US may not exist
in  other first class, first world countries because the resourses are
just not  there, due to geography, population distributions, or any
number of  reasons.

Hell, Ron, we both know that even in the US, the  resources are not
distributed because of geography, population  distribution or other 
reasons...and from our shared Medical Corps background, we  also know
that there might 
even be 'tactical' reasons for that  imbalance...
