Great job Paul!!  You never cease to "hit the nail on the head" with these cartoons!  Keep up the good work!  Maybe the politicians who are alsways wanting to cut our budgets and benefits will find a way instead to cut out the abuses to the system which have to cost millions nation wide.

God love you Paul - I cannot tell you how many times this happened to me when I was a Paramedic/Firefighter. Expensive taxi, entertaining ride and the patient was treated well including receiving their frequent flyer miles. Food and drink were optional unless one of the paramedics needed an IV stick for their re-certification time – then they got D5W IV. These patients were not big tippers. They never failed to inform us that they vote for our levies EVERY TIME it came to the ballot. Trying to get some "good credit" for the next ride. Brought back good memories. Thanks
