We had an apartment in the city



* Critics say complaints continue about Lincoln nursing home. If you've ever spent any time in any nursing home, it doesn't take long to figure out what the problem is. Profit. The nursing home owners need to make a profit. The biggest expense involved in running a nursing home is paying for staff. Read the article and you can figure out the rest. (Side note: It has been my observation that some nursing homes run by religious institutions don't necessarily have these problems. Perhaps because they don't have to worry about profits.)

* So if you're walking down the street sometime | and spot some hollow ancient eyes | please don't just pass 'em by and stare | as if you didn't care, say, Hello in there, hello.

Disgusting. There shouldn't be second chances for preventable problems.

Business has been on a cost-cutting binge for the last 20 years or so. They want to do more with less and are trying to condition the public into accepting the resultant loss of service, which they deny even exists. The "all hands on deck ... all the time ... everyone do everything" philosophy is simply not sustainable.

I know, Allie. But, it's the only system we have.

Rob, that definitely sums it up. You sound like you know what you're talking about.
