Latin Influence

To my son Tommy,

People always question your Grandpa Leo when he declares his Puerto Rican heritage. Genetically, of course, he has no claim to that heritage, but being raised in Puerto Rico from age 10 till after college when he joined the Army, he certainly is allowed to identify as Puerto Rican. The Hispanic influence is never more evident than here at the Johns Hopkins ER today. Notice the backwards gown with only the top connected. Straight out Latin gangsta. Just needs his bandanna tied around his head. You should be lucky to be this cool when you have a seizure! I joke because the alternatives (crying, getting angry, etc) suck. Find solace in humor whenever you can. He is doing better than he was an hour ago, which is all we can ask.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
