His motto: " He who gives while he lives,., also knows where it goes. " Backside Exposure Is No Laughing Matter Dear Mr. Ross: Recently I was very disappointed by a comment that you had written in a response. The letter was from Ms. Y. L. of Tempe, Arizona. She had requested money to purchase robes and nightgowns for her disabled mother. To quote you, "Hospital gowns were designed as a cruel joke, allowing the nursing staff to have a cheap laugh." What an outragel I have been practicing nursing for five years and that state- intervened. I'm now on medication and can see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. I've missed a lot of work in the process, let bills slide to a screeching halt and pretty much made a financial mess. Wouldn't you know my car insurance had lapsed when I got in a minor fender bender. I count my lucky stars that the police didn't need to be invblved. But it got me thinking how dangerous it is to be without insurance. Finan- ment really took me aback, especially coming from cially, it could ruin a person for life. So, I'm appealing yout NursingisalabeE.,oflqyg=T0~gl~St e~ast,~ to u fer,.$720-a ear's remium for m auto in u th ' ,. ....... yo ~ Y P y sr- at nulses would submit aperient tohdmlhatlo~tf0r our ance.

I know in this day and age of political correctness that it seems like we walk on eggshells with virtually everyone, but in some cases it is not a matter of a currant fad-it is a matter of choosing your words wiselyl Ms. J. B .... Community Newspapers, Wayne, MI Dear Ms. B.: lapologtze. Itwasn't myintentlon to take a cheap shot at the nursing profession. So many nurses wrote to explain the practical design of hospital gowns for administering care, etc. So I had a bid experience years ago and was humili- ated. Get over it, right? The bulk of you gals and guys are wonderful at your profession and are to be applauded. Funny thing, thought, I didn't hear from one doctor, physi- cal therapist, registered dieUcian, X-rsy tech or ph lebotomist in defense of you nurses. Could it be that perhaps they also had a good laugh at your expense? Again, my apologies, Deer Mr. Ross: i don't quite understand how I got to this terrible place, but some time ago I arrived at the station and can't seem to get back. No, I haven't chafiged physical locations. I've fallen into a terrible depression and in my fall I've brought everything down with me. Thank God for a concerned co-worker who Mr. C. J .... Thrifty Nickel, San Antonio, TX Dear Mr. J.: Now that the grips of despair have released you, welcome back to reality: the land of pay the freight. Let me share an insight. When financial troubles begin, this is how people who write me prioritize expanses from least to most important: car insurance, dental work, medical attention, clothes, utilities, phone, rent and finally food. Some people approach me at the beginning. Other people's pride goes before the fall and they wait until they are homeless. Congratulations on pushing your pride aside because you are now insursd-vehicle wise for the next year. Dear Mr. Ross: I would like to be on the bone marrow donor list. One small hitch--a $70 charge to the potential donor for the initial blood work. All other expenses are paid by the recipient if I am fo~Jnd to be a match. I just don't have the $701 Could you help? Mrs. F. R .... The Enterprise, Lynnwood, WA Dear Mrs. R.: A small request, but such a life- giving one. By way of my modest $100, please register yourself as a bone marrow donor.
