1. Another (long secret) Ross Perot story. The family of a friend of mine lived near him. The friend, while training for Olympic Decathlon in Nowhere, Texas, was in a car accident. Local hospital said he couldn't be transported, and they couldn't save this great person.....
2...the mom went to Perot's house, asking for help. Without a moment's hesitation, he arranged for an emergency team from Parkland Hospital in Dallas to get on his private plane and flew them to this flyspeck of a town, where they went to work on my friend.

While the accident...
3...ended his Olympic career, and left him with long-term damage, this man is alive, happy, married, and a symbol of perseverance to Dallas.

Perot didn't say "not my problem." Like with everything, he said "Whenever I can help and do what's right, I will."

He was a great man.
