I have finally realized that I should have no concern about the ugly hospital in Temple. I had forgotten that it has not been landscaped. This should improve the appearance a great deal. I hope the plan is to plant a row of giant sequoia trees completely around the building. These should eventually grow higher than the building and cover most of the hideous architecture. At the same time jungle growth could be planted in front of the sequoias all the way to the street. This should provide almost immediate coverage of the building if the foliage is watered enough.
A large moat could be dredged around the building between the trees and jungle growth. The moat could be filled with alligators and piranhas to deter illegal aliens from filling the emergency room. Drawbridges could be constructed across the moat and could be raised with a card provided to paying customers such as HMO patients or those with other approved insurance plans. This should greatly improve the financial picture for the institution and make it possible to pay off the staggering debt for the building and other facilities and the equipment necessary to practice advanced medicine.
This plan should much easier to pull off than the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq.

With all of the vegetation, it will appear as an oasis in Central Texas.

A fabulous idea Doc! With the exception of the drawbridge (which would take the S&W contractors and board over a decade to complete)all of your idea sounds like a workable plan. And the good news is that all of it can be "out-sourced" which will make the board deliriously happy because if it is not "out-sourced" it just isn't done right. No one around here has enough brains to do anything right, that is why they "out-source" everything at the white mecca. I'm sure glad they "out-sourced" the new building or it might have turned out ugly.
