In January 2010,

a role model ambulance sis-

"What we think is the
contributing factor of this
success is the customer sat-

to the table," Kimbrell said,
noting the 'company fully
implemented customer
satisfaction tools to benefit
its clients. "We're doing
the same -typ~e of custom-

hospitals are doing across
the country to drive up
their customer satisfaction
scores. Not only are we on
top of the game as it relates
to clinical quality, but more
importantly our commit-

is second to none."

SScripps Howard columnist
Ann McFeatters has covered
the White House and national
politics since 1986.

Congress can begin to bring
about consumer choice at the
pump byr adopting the Open -
Fuel Standard Act, soon to be
reintroduced with bipartisan
support. Woolsey and Korin
emphasize: "'An Open Fuel
Standard would require new
cars to include a $100 tweaik
that would allow them to run
on a variety of liquid fuels in -
Saddition to gasoline. Such fuels
would include methanol, which
is easily made from natural gas
and biomass {(and, less cleanly,
from coal). Enabling vehicles
to use natural gas, whether
directly or via liquid fuels
that are made from it, allows
consumers to benefit from the
large cost advantage that natu-
ral gas holds today over oil.
What about wind, solar and
nuclear power? At this point,
the) cannot be part of the solu-
tion because they cannot sub-
stitute for liquid transportation
fuels. Eventually, we probably
will see electric and plug-in
hybrid vehicles come on line
in sufficient numbers to make
an impact. But we can't wait.
There's a war on.
To avoid losing that war we
must reduce the power of oil,
but riot by limiting our mobil-
ityr. Instead we can introduce
fxiel competition that will lead
to fuel diversity and abun-
Last week, President Barack
Obath~a ridiculed those con-
cerned about the cost of gaso-
line. "If you're getting eight
miles a gallon you may want to
think about a trade-in," he said.
Yes, but it's not odir clunker

It's our clunker energy poli- ~

il is selling for
close to $110 a

Sline for about $4 a
Gallon. Bad news
for motorists. Marvrelous news
for jihadis. -
Iran's rulers are using oil -
money to develop nuclear
weapons and fund terrorists,
including Hezbollah, now,
staging a slow-motion coup. in
Lebanon, and Hamas, which
is committed to the extermi-
nation of Israel. A generous
share of the money that goes
to Saudi Arabia and other
Gulf nations ends up in the
Scoffers of the Taliban and al-
Qaeda. Hugo Chavez spends
IVenezuela's petro-dollars to
erypand his infuence, and that
of his Iratriian~ allies, through- ~
out Latin America.
The war we are ~fighting
in many parts of the world is
unconventional but g~r ene-
Smies are not so different from
those we have fought in the
past. In the 20th century, free
nations were threatened by
Nazis, whose goal was global
rule by a race, and commu-
nists, whose goal was global
rule~by a class. The challenge
today comes from regimes
and movements committed to
global rule by members of a
religious group. .
SIn World War II, Franklin
SRoosevelt and Winston,
Churchill understood that
Adolf Hitler could not prevail -
if Allied troops denied him
access to the oil fields of Nor-th
Africa and Central Asia. In the
Cold War, Ronald Reagan's use
of'economic weapons was key
to bringing about the collapse
of the Soviet Union. .
Of course, we can't deny oil
to OPEC, the cartel that sits
on more than three-quarters
of the world's conventional

reserves. But we could im~ple-
ment policies designed to
break oil's virtual monopoly as
a transportation fuel, stabilize
and even reduce fuel prices
and dimiinish thle ability 6f
hostile oil producing regimes
to wage economic warfare
against us.
Such polices would include
increasing domestic oil produc-
. tion, and speeding the pipeline
project that would bring oil
mined from Canadian sands to
the U.S. Conservation is good,
too. But these measures are
only part of th~e solution. Why?
As Jim Woolsey, former
director of Central Intelligence
and current chairman of the
Foundation for Defense.of
Democracies, and Anne Korin,
co-director of the Institute for
the Analysis of Global Securitl,
noted, OPEC is "a conspiracy
mn restraint of trade." That
means that when non-OPEC
countries "drill more, OPEC
sunply drills less and drives
prices back up." If demand is
reduced through conservation,
"OPEC again drills less and
prices zip back up."
What we need: a competi-
tive transportation fuel market.
If the price of Coke goes up,
you can switch to Pepsi. If the
price of beef climbs too.high
you can eat chicken. But when .
the price of gasoline goes up
you have no choice but to pay
or change your lifestyle - in
some cases dramatically.

t is fair to say that up
until now President
Barack Obama has
seemed relatively indif-
Iferent to the federal defi-
cit, set to reach $1.6 trillion in
the third year of his watch.
He did not fight to let the
tax break for wealthy individuals
and families expire, which would
have raised $700 million over 10
years. And he met the recom-
mendations of his own deficit-
reduction commission with less
than a full embrace. His pro-
.posed 2012 budget did call for a
freeze on certain spending, but
largely left the big drivers of the
deficit defense, Medicare and
Medicaid -alone.
Now Obama has tried
to make the deficit-reduc-
tion issue his own. He did
so in fairly harsh partisan
terms, because the lead
Republican on budget issues,
Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan,
was in the audience at George

Washington University nat
Obama's invitation.
;Te grave defect in Ryan's
own deficit-reduction plan is that
it is all spending cuts and does
nothing on the revenue side.
Indled, it calls for more tax cuts.
Said Obama* "There's ixothing
serious about a plan that claims
to reduce the deficit by spend-
ing ~a ~trillion dollars for tax cuts
for millionaires and billionaires."
Obama's new plan, with many
key details missing, calls for
$4 trillion in deficit reduction '
over 12 years. He would let the
George W. Bush tax cut for
the wealthy expire at the end
of 2012. The biggest hits on
spending would be $400 billion
out of defense, $770 billion out
of domestic programs and $360
billion out of farm subsidies and
other mandatory programs. The
Pentagon pushed back against
any cuts beyond those that
Defense Secretary Robert Gates
has already called for.

One miissing detail was how
his proposed "debt fail safe', .
would work. This would be a
"trigger automatically cutting
spending across the board if,~ in
2014, the national debt was still
rising as a percentage of the
total economy.
Obama's tone and manner
seemed also intended to answer
criticism from liberal Democrats
that the president is too aloof
and too reluctant to engage con-
gressional Riepublicans, espe-
cially o'n issues driven by the
Tea Party movement. Obama
did attempt to frame the budget
debate in broader terms, saying
.that the Republicans' budget
proposals "paint a vision of our
future that's deeply pessimistic.,,
Perhaps as an indication
of his new seriousness about
curbing federal spending, the
president met with the co-
chairs of his deficit-reduction
commission. It's a start.

Hand transplantation
has come a long way
since the first one was
ca1'ried out in Ecuador in
1964 before the develop>-
ment of modern immuno-
suppressive therapy. The
transplant failed after two
weeks and the patient
had to have the new
hand amputated.
More than three
decades later, French
doctors in 1998 per-
formed a hand transplant
that lasted two years.
The recipient did not
take fixedications as
ordered and his body
rejected the limb.
Since then, more than
40 hand transplants have
been performed around
the world including sev-
eral double hand trans-
plants. The recipient of
the first U.S. hand trans-
plant in 1999 has lived
with a donor hand for a
little over a decade.
"It's clear that it's
achievable," said Dr.
Warren Breidenbach,
who performed the his-
toric surgery.
The UCLA operation
cost about $800,000, but
since it was' experimen-
tal, the patient did not
Shave to pay.

Lu's lead surgeon, Dr.
Linda Cendales, said
many who undergo a
hand transplant tend to
feel more sensation than
if they wore a prosthetic,
and they are ablb to open
doors, tie their shoes or
turn the pages of a news-
"They will never have a
normal hand," Cendales
said. "But they do recover
enough sensation to dif-
ferentiate between tem-
peratures, and rough and
smooth surfaces.

Little has been revealed
about the donor except
that the hand matched the
patient's in terms of blod d
type, size and color.
A week after the
UCLA operation, doc-
tors at Emory University
liospital mn Atlanta per-
formed the 14th hand
transplant in the country.
The recipient was 21-
year-old Linda Lu, who

A similar effect was seen
in the study of Truvada in
gay men. The drug lowered
the chances of infection by
44 percent, and by 73 per-
cent or more among men
who took their pills most
faithfully. The U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and
Pi-evention recently gave
' advice to doctors on pre-,
scribing Truvada along
with other prevention ser-
vices for gay men, based on
those encouraging results.
In the new study, "it's
difficult to understand why

said Dr. Robert M. Grant
of the Gladstone Institutes,

California, San Francisco.
He led the study of
Truvada in gay men and
said, "we are very confident
that this approach is use-

"must be seen as what it
is the closure of a sin-

generated exciting results
in the recent past," said
Mitchell Warren, head of

Coalition, a nonprofit group
that works on HIV preven-
tion research.
Two other large stud-
ies testing AIDS drugs for
prevention are under way
in Africa, in heterosexual
women and in couples
where one has the virus
and the other does not.
Results are expected within
two years. The studies have
mostly been in countries
with high rates of new infec-
tions because that makes it
easier to see whether a pre-
vention measure is having
an impact.

$14,000 a year in the United
States, but as little' as $140

said. "I think when we're
back together we'll know
more. People's legal posi-

Both sides said the ses-

DEAR ABBY: "Heartbro-
ken in New York" (March 8)
expressed his concerns about
his dog "Izyla's" injuries after
his son's ~friend "Isaac" tried
to ride on the dog's backc. He
asked .you whether he and
his wife should inform Isaac's
parents. You responded in the
affirmative and stated Isaac's
parents should be responsible
for the damages to the, dog.
I disagree. Dog owners
are responsible for supervis"
ing their pets when children
are present. Our dog Max,
who I dearly loved and raised
alongside our two children,
was not by nature fond of
children.~ Therefore, I never
allowed him out of my sight
when children were around.
I supervised him constantly
- for the children's sakes as
well as Max's.
"Heartbroken" was at least
partly responsible because he
decided to let Layla fend for
herself around Isaac, "wvho
doesn't have' a .dog." While
what happened to the animal
was extremely unfortunate,
holding the other parents
responsible for. damages is
Cl'hank you for your perspec-
tive, which was repeated by
many readers. I hope thie fol-
lowing responses will serve
as important reminders to pet
owners. Read on:
DEAR ABBYG: "Heartbro-
ken" should invite Isaac and

leaving Layla alone with the
children. I always keep my
pets near me when neighbors
visit. It's my job to protect my
pet. If "Heartbroken" had tak-
en the time to set boundaries
about playing with the dog,
this might have been avoided.
What's sad is that Layla is suf-
fering for it. MARY IN
DEAR ABBY: You sug-
gested layla's owners tell
Isaac's parents to explain the
.mistake he made and that
~they should pay for the dam-
ages. There is another impor-
tant reason for this lesson to
be explained. If Isaac tried to
ride on the back of a less tol-
erant dog, he could havre been '
bitten and seriously injured.
Even an otherwise gentle dog
could interpr-et a "ride" as a
threat and respond .aggres-
sively. Pet ownership; requires
accepting responsibility, and
that, includes ediscating those
who doxi't know' in' order to
prevent accidents or injuries,
DEAR ABBY: I'm sorry
about the injury to that dog.
But l guarantee that if the dog
had bitten Isaac, his parents
would be suing or demanding
payment of all medical bils.
Its a sad day for all. GAR-

his parents over to see Layla
with their own eyes so they
can understand the extent of
the dog's injuries. Isaac needs
to learn that if he hurts anoth-
er living creature, there will
be consequences. Because his
parents missed teaching their
son this lesson, "Heartbro-
ken" should do it. Childhood
is not about being protected
from essential life lessons; it's
a time to learn how to become
caring, responsible adults. _
DEAR ABBY: I found it
disturbing that layla was be-
ing kept on pain medication
for "three weeks and is grow-
ing progressively worse."
That family needs a new vet.
X-rays and an MRI should
have already been in the
works. Yes, such procedures
are expensive, but they are
also necessary to assist our
speechless friends. HEAL-
