"I lived in Phoenix for 30 years, and worked on the streets every day as a mobile glass installer. "
how exactly does one go from being a glass installer for 30 years to medical doctor over the course of 2 years & 3 weeks?

I finally left Phoenix in 2001 (Phoenix over the New York Crankees in the WS, YEAH, BUDDY!), and I can tell you this...the schools were REQUIRING my children to take Spanish classes, every street corner had <Wetbacks on it at 6 a.m. Mon-Sun waiting for someone to pick them up to do labor work, and even the billboards were all going up in Spanish. Even worse, the job market was deteriorating because of all the cheap labor. It was getting real, real bad when I left. My parents are still out there and have assured me that nothing has changed much. The city and state are trying, but its a HUGE mess, especially with the Fed Govt trying to keep them under their thumb."

"The immediate surroundings of Crown Candy were recently given a facelift, but the overall area is still in disrepair.
This is the area of St. Louis that most concerns me. My father was raised in a North city St. Louis neighborhood. As a kid, the area was nice, but it became a slum shortly after he moved out. Years later, the city forced my grandmother out of the home she'd lived her entire life in so they could put in a new public school. She died less than a year later and it's thought by many within the family that the process of moving away from her life-long home killed her"
