I have seen an entire family lifted out of poverty and into affluence
by the simple boon of a broken leg. I have had people come to me on crutches,
with tears in their eyes, to bless this beneficient institution. In all
my experiences of life, I have seen nothing so seraphic as the look that
comes into a freshly mutilated man's face when he feels in his vest pocket
with his remaining hand and finds his accident ticket all right.
