    A moose in ER

    JessicaGmz, I have to disagree, think of how many people that bear could have hurt. This is a wild dangerous animal in an enclosed space. This equation doesn't quite work out for someone. If it was you and you were face to face with those claws and ...

    Bomb Attack On London

    I woke up and was getting ready to go in for my shift and for some reason I felt I had to turn on the TV and saw that CNN was airing a live broadcast from the London bureau. I am repulsed by the utter disregard for humanity but I am also amazed at th...
