    How about a section just for the Anti-Steven people.

    Any thing negative about Steven or his fans could be put there. I thought when I your the rules, there would be no personal detractions about anyone. The anti steven people could enjoy themselves and no one else need be annoyed.

    Just a note about who got medical treatment first.

    The very worse intervention in a disaster ever!

    It’s hard to believe that disaster nursing in the US could be more dangerous than anything I’ve face overseas. First somebody shot at the helicopter when I was dropped into a hospital. Then the Army made me leave because they there were no police to stop armed looters who were breaking into the...
