You may have heard. Dr. Trent Pierce was seriously injured when a bomb exploded in or near his car yesterday morning in West Memphis.

I knew the guy. When I lived in midtown and worked in West Memphis, he was the closest thing you could call to my doctor, although I almost never go to the doctor--I think I saw him more frequently socially than as a physician--he'd come to plays in town, he went to the same church as my then-girlfriend, and you'd run into him at the occasional charity fundraiser. Realistically, he was the only doctor in West Memphis with a family practice--nearly everyone in town knew him, and as far as I know everyone in town liked him. Great bedside manner, affable, easy to talk to.

Needless to say, the hospital they took him to isn't exactly safe. Hopefully they'll bear that in mind and actually post someone at the door. He'll never make a full recovery, unfortunately, but here's hoping for the best for him.
