Wednesday letters: Does Randolph need a driver?

July 31, 2013 

— I was a certified registered nurse anesthetist for 30-plus years. If state NAACP President Lonnie Randolph’s diabetes is so brittle and unstable, why doesn’t he have an insulin pump implanted to help keep his blood sugar within normal limits? Seems as though this may help alleviate the problem.

Second, if this is such a serious — and apparently recurring — problem, should Dr. Randolph be allowed behind the wheel of a 5,000-pound WMD? Would he ask to be forgiven and charges dismissed if he was involved in an accident with fatalities?

It appears to me that he needs an attendant or at least a full-time driver.
