LOL I loved the comment about Ray Ray. Most people who know him, despise him and would laugh at the comment just as I did. And, as far as my contribution to healthcare in the Delta, I do that all day long.
So, I think I deserve a funny at the end of the day. Yeah, who is that masked man driving around in the black hummer with DRMC signs on the side? Oh, and, by the way...did anyone else receive a color, slick-paged report in the mail about DRMC's finances in the mail?
Well, it looks as if the entire picture painted is hunky dorey. I know the financial reports change often depending on who they are intended for. Ray sure sounded like DRMC was in a financial bind in Jackson, didn't he?
Hmmmm, two, three, four sets of books? I guess Woody White did know what he was talking about!! If Ray Humphreys is out of town interviewing for another job, THANK GOODNESS!!! He will not be missed!
Ahhh, yes, Ray's annual work of fiction... with a $4 million dollar "polish" job! This year's "novel" is a rather understated publication in which you almost have to hunt for the deception. The front page is a series of run-on lies which are touted as accomplishments. Anyone with any first hand knowledge of DRMC won't get past the first 20 without breaking into laughter. I am sure that Dr. Frothingham is duly impressed that he remains a jewel in DRMC's crown, even though he was fired by Ray earlier in the year!
As always, the annual statistics on the back page are the best laugh of all. My personal favorite is the "nursing shortage" of only 3%. The problem with this statistic is that if you removed all of the contract, agency, and travel nurses from DRMC, the vacancy rate would be more like 85%. This is just another one of the gross misrepresentations presented by Alphe Wells to mask his incompetence.
While on the subject of "masks", let us consider that it could be Alphe in the black Hummer. He and L. Ray are tight and "umbically" linked via Blackberry at all times of the day and night. With Alyson's recent departure and the demotion of of Flo Jones, Ray has but one loyal "spy" left in his network... and what better Gothem City "bat-mobile" could one imagine? Just throw a magnetic DRMC sign on the side and PRESTO... it's tax deductible!
Yes, Woody White saw the writing on the wall. Courtney Phillips should be as wise. Ray has no intention of going down alone on this ship. Word on the street is that major lay-offs are coming in August... count the lifeboats... then do the math!
