At least he has a point to be made, you on the other hand do not.
That's the BEST lesson to teach your kids. Never-ever-EVER go anywhere with someone in that situation. Fight your last stand right then right there. No matter WHAT happens? It will be better than what awaits you ten or twenty miles into the night. It's something everyone should remember.
He broke into their dorm room and tied them up, taking them one by one into another room to torture and kill them. One woman survived. He lost count, and she'd hidden under the bed.Richard Franklin Speck (December 6, 1941 – December 5, 1991) was a mass murderer who systematically tortured, raped, and murdered eight student nurses from South Chicago Community Hospital on July 14, 1966.
There are demons among us.Illinois state legislature, Kurtis pointed out the explicit scenes of sex, drug use, and money being passed around by prisoners, who seemingly had no fear of being caught; in the center of it all was Speck, performing oral sex on another inmate, sharing a huge pile of cocaine with an inmate, parading in silk panties, sporting female-like breasts (allegedly grown using smuggled hormone treatments), and boasting, "If they only knew how much fun I was having, they'd turn me loose." The Illinois legislature packed the auditorium to view the two-hour video, but stopped the screening when the film showed Speck performing oral sex on another man.
From behind the camera, a prisoner asked Speck why he killed the nurses. Speck shrugged and jokingly said, "It just wasn't their night." Asked how he felt about himself in the years since, he said, "Like I always felt ... had no feeling. If you're asking me if I felt sorry, no." He also described in detail the experience of strangling someone: "It's not like TV ... it takes over three minutes and you have to have a lot of strength." John Schmale, the brother of one of the murdered student nurses, said, "It was a very painful experience watching him tell about how he killed my sister."
Portions of the tapes were later broadcast on the A&E Network's Investigative Reports. The same airing of Investigative Reports included interviews with people who believed Speck was not taking hormones, wearing panties, etc. voluntarily, and he'd instead been forced to by other inmates — this may have been his way of surviving his time in prison.
Thank you, Quazi!
Good video to watch if you would like.

ACPE is getting stricter with criteria, but they have to accredit schools that meet criteria. They don't get to set a cap on new schools. Many areas in healthcare are suffering or uncertain right now. Physician reimbursement has gone down, nurses are losing jobs and hospitals are laying people off. Salaries have stayed where they are through the recession.
The market isn't super great right now (as it is with many fields), but it isn't horrid. If things are bad though I'll probably work per diem and go to med school or PA school if I don't feel like going for 4 more years.

There was a big pharmacist shortage in the early 2000's. Salaries skyrocketed. Schools saw prospect and opened new programs. In 2008 things slowed with the economy. Many of the newer schools have only graduated 1-2 classes or have yet to graduate a class. The biggest limiting step for training physicians is the residency positions which appear to be capped due to funding, there is a physician shortage largely due to residency training post-med school not expanding as needed. There are some DO schools that have been popping up though.
Just curious, but do you work in pharmacy? You do seem knowledgeable about the profession and regulating bodies. There are some private schools that have opened up that are taking in under-par students. I do not attend one of those schools, but there do exist a few that accept students with a near 3.0 GPA and a 60 average on the PCAT. I have known several students that didn't get accepted into any programs after 2 application cycles. Schools still have far more applicants than they do seats and it's not guaranteed that people will get in. I believe my school still had about a 16% chance for acceptance when it came to applicants vs. those accepted.
