Interesting fact about bloodbanks....

Postby grlnxtdr29 on September 28th, 2013, 8:37 pm

One of the first Blood banks in the US was established by a Black man. He later Bled to death on the steps of a Whites only hospital. One of the first recipients of Blood from his Blood bank was a high ranking Member of the KKK. Isn't History cruel sometimes?

I actually knew that bit of history. I had heard it on an episode of M*A*S*H, of all things.

People should just help others... but I know

Quantum Leap!!!! My hubby and I never missed an episode and we have them all on DVD. Also loved all the QL references in Belasarius's next hit, J.A.G. .
