Plastic surgeon wanted to kill family. How I remember Dr. Bonanno



Ihaven't slept in two days agonizing over what happened to my former friend. I didn't want to write this post feeling I didn't want to seem to profit in any way off this tragedy. But I've been reading rubber stamp comments, jokes and other stuff about Dr.Bonnano so I thought maybe I could put the human behind the story in a bit of a more human nature.
In 2001 I became a Physician Assistant at a prestigious NY hospital. My first job was working the surgery department. Big mistake! Surgeons as a group are some of the most narcissistic assholes on Earth (the men. The female surgeons were wonderful with great patience especially with a brand new PA). Every day was a terrifying experience. Not only did it suck working with these guys in the regular environment but being locked up for 4-8 hours in an operating room with one of these assholes was like an eternity in Hell, getting screamed at because I didn't know as much as he knew in his 20 years of practice, belittling the nurse and actually throwing tools around the room if something didn't go just their way. Rounds sucked because for the smallest thing they would belittle you like a child in front of 20-30 of your colleagues and co-workers.
I hated the damn job and it is my believe that even 19 years later I still think it screwed up my perspective of the job.
There were two bright spots:the Chief Resident who I'll only identify as V and a 3rd year resident named Dr. Matthew Bonnano. He had a great sense of humor, he helped me learn without the slightest discernible pretense, he was a joker always playing tricks, he was in every sort of way one of the nicest, wonderful people I've ever met and although I soon left that Hellhole for a much nicer opportunity I never forgot and always fondly remembered Dr.Bonnano  overthe next 19 years.
I'm literally heartbroken over what happen to my friend. He made it through maybe 8 years of working with monsters, sometimes being awake 36 or more hours in a row without ever showing a moments irritation, or bad attitude.
I grieve for my friend today but thank God he only got as far as stockpiling all that shit. I'm sorry for his child, I'm sorry for his dad ( If he still is with us) who I visited once for a mole on my back and who was so wonderful if we were able to pick our grandfather's I would have he would have been my pick.
Again, I wrote this to show part of the human behind the story and hopefully none of you ever have to learn the same thing about your friends. It leaves you sad, grieved and so damn bewildered you doubt your own memory.
Matt, good luck

Israel's Unique way of spoiling paradise for martyrs

Imagine your a supposedly successful suicide bomber in Israel. "Ah, my contribution to the destruction against those damned Jews is done" you shout in glee.And there before you are your beautiful 72 virgins, all ready and willing to grant you anything your evil heart desires. You choose one and approach her. She begins to disrobe. You reach out to touch her! All of a sudden someone taps you on the back. You turn and to your horror and see that it is Satan himself in all his malevolent glory with a big smile on his face. "Before you start to enjoy yourself look up, there's something I want you to see" states The Prince of Darkness with a booming laugh". With a sickly feeling of terror (no pun intended)  you look up what do you see? Your family, father, mother, siblings, pet hamster all being dragged from their home. screaming, fighting, pleading but to no avail. Next you hear a rumble and over the hill comes a bulldozer.Within minutes its job is done, your…

Breaking News Update: National Parks: Strange Disappearances Especially Children That Vanish Into Thin Air

This is a post I had written several weeks ago. Well Breaking News: CNN reporting that a child has been found after being lost in the woods for 3 days. Incredibly the child told authorities A BEAR! kept him company the entire time!
Since the inception of the National Park System was established more than 140 years ago our parks have grown from 1 to 450. They represent millions of square mile of scenic beauty, quiet, and escape into solitude. You can also swim, hike and disappear. Disappear? That's right, disappear into thin air. Not only adults but especially little children many of whom all it takes is a parent to bend and tie their shoe, look up and the child is gone. Not just gone but disappeared. Calling the child's name frantically, running in circles, screaming, nothing works. I means how far can a 3 year old child go so quickly? How about if I were to tell you 5 miles away, up a shear cliff, dead and stuffed in a tree?
Or there you are walking down a clear path on a br…

Trump Elected With Help From Pelosi and Schumer

Although it is obvious that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and others seethe at the very idea that Donald Trump is President of The United States but what they don't get is that they are some of the main forces behind Trumps victory! The American people got tired of the herd of political hypocrites, liars, thieves and just plain bums that were running our government. Americans got tired of all the indecent sobs that claimed empathy with the "people", like Nancy Pelosi who's $140,000 salary has miraculously mushroomed into a $200,000,000 fortune. Schumer, who spoils every Sunday morning with some inane announcement of outrage regarding, who knows, the ice at Rockefeller Center is really is 32.1 degrees instead of 32 degrees and vows to use every thing in his power to see that the perpetrators are brought to justice.
Americans have been getting sicker and sicker of the fact that their government was not for the people but for themselves. What American felt any, any ki…
