We should just take up arms and re-revolt against the yankee oppressors( I know you're a transplanted yankee, but we're willing to overlook it).  If Key West can secede why can't we?  We were never formally asked to join the United States of Aggression.  LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS!  REMEMBER THE ALAMO!Juan C.

Please pass the cheeseyou might want to hit the delete button on this one. I'm prepared to getflamed and have my registries revoked, but I have to get something off mychest.	As some of you may know, ASCP is now in charge of handling thePathologists' Assistant exam, of which I am partaking in. Not only did theyraise the exam fee from $150 to $450, we now have to know ICD-9 codes, notto mention Robbin's Pathology book (which is heavy enough to break a vase. Iknow this because it fell out of my hand the other night and shattered avase.) Have you seen the ICD-9 book? Rather extension reading if I do say somyself.	Moving on, after January 2008, one has to be a graduate of an accreditedprogram. Well, that's just dandy because we in the South do not have anyprograms to attend because they are all up North or on the East Coast. Arewe going to have to repeat the 1860's again? Are we in the South going tohave to resort to revolting and have demonstration marches? Do I sense somediscrimination here? Am I too sensitive? (I think not)	It took us two years here just to get a Histology program up and going atthe local community college. How long is it going to take to start amaster's level program?	There, I've said my piece. thank you for letting me get thing off my chest.Oh yeah, I'm collecting money to replace the vase I broke. Until then, I'llbe sleeping with my dogs. Which is okay, but the fleas are killing me.	One other thing, I like Swiss, Muenster, Colby, Cheddar (sharp).	as always, the opinion of this author does not reflect the opinions of theemployees, their children, mothers, lawyers, etc, etc, etc.Joe Nocito, BS, HT(ASCP) QIHCHistology ManagerPathology Reference LabSan Antonio, TX_______________________________________________Histonet mailing _______________________________________________Histonet mailing mailing listHistonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu Notice ** The information contained in this message may be privileged and is confidential information intended for the use of the addressee listed above.
