Life (and death) in 'Murica

North Texas teacher dies after getting the flu

Heather Holland, a second-grade teacher at Ikard Elementary School with the Weatherford Independent School District died over the weekend, the Weatherford Democrat reports. Holland got sick about a week ago and took medication, but delayed picking up the prescription due to the $116 copay, according to the newspaper.

By Friday night, Holland's condition worsened and she was taken to the hospital. Her husband Frank Holland told the Weatherford Democrat that she died Sunday morning.

"She loved helping people, helping the kids, and the kids loved her," Holland's husband told the Weatherford Democrat.

There’s no way that’s a co-pay for flu meds. If it really is, that insurance company and school district should be tried for murder and the union should be sent to an asylum.

Just another reason to never go to Outback:

...TWRA officer Andrew Ward said he was asked by a manager at the Outback Steakhouse in Cleveland to remove his weapon.

Ward says he explained that he had to have it on his person because he was in uniform, but the manager explained that the restaurant was a "gun-free zone."...

...He says that another customer seated across from him was “scared for her life” and afraid because “police are shooting people.”...
