This trend of medical inefficiency of doctors or staff in some or many hospitals in this country, state or any city is inexcusable and a curse.

I recall such medical mishaps like this occurred in Washington-Drew Hospital in L.A.

At Stanford, 300 patients were probably exposed to TB due to lack of sanitation for medical equipment.

At my nearest hospital, two ER staff members died of Fentanyl abuse.

I had serious Staph infections, twice, during the past 2 years. Successfully treated with strong antibiotics.

However, because of my staph infections; I was excluded by my military commanders from participating in missions with other members of my military unit, even denied from attending a chaplain service during one field training exercise.

In effect, I was quarantined and actually later, I became ostracised from the unit.

Other health issues of mine also came into view, so the unit's commanding medical section implored me to resign with the promise of me receiving an Honorable Discharge.

Otherwise, I'd receive a Medical Discharge and removed for the Good Of The Army.

So I signed the resignation form and I got my Honorable Discharge by March of this year.

Yes, Tony was a painting artist and he did so not ONLY as a hobby.

I have one of his drawings that he made me when he signed my copy of "Tony Curtis: The Autobiography."

The drawing displays cat eyeing the Gold fish in the fish tank. Took Tony Curtis only seconds to sketch it on a dark red page.

Tony Curtis had spent time on Hawaii to heal after his career in Hollywood stressed him and his family. He started painting as an accomplished artist there, and not onely as a hobby.

I met him twice, in 1993 & 1999, here in Marin County.

"He did not think dying was dying," Tony said to an audience I was in, "Dead? No! You just left and arrived someplace else!"
