Guess What's Coming to Americus?

The bad news: Despite the efforts of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, tornado-devastated Sumter Regional Hospital did not win the Siemen's online contest for a brand new $800,000.00 MRI machine.

The good news: The company is going to give them one anyway. Moved by the video footage showing what remained of the hospital after mother nature had her way, Siemen's will be packing up one of those shiny new machines and shipping it to Georgia just as soon as the new hospital is ready in 2010.

Now, that's good corporate citizenship, due in no small part, I suspect, to the eloquent advocacy of Mrs. Carter.

Plus YOUR lead on previously drawing our attention to the contest. I voted early and often for the MRI, it was almost as easy as a Georgia Absentee ballot. :-)
