Surely, Nothing Could Go Wrong With This Plan. (And Stop Calling Me Shirley.)

NYC has announced plans to send two ambulances on certain calls during a test program for the next few months. The first unit will do it's damdest to save your life.  The second will be standing by to harvest your organs!

I don't actually have a great big problem with this, but it might be well to remember that one of the reasons that municipal EMS units came into existence in the 1970's was that private ambulance companies used to have a habit of fighting over who would get to transport accident victims...while the patient died by the side of the road.

Just sayin'.
