Ambulance Talk

The Ticket was discussing the 40th anniversary of the UT Tower shootings (and, man, the new issue of Texas Monthly sounds fascinating), and they mentioned that the ambulances involved in the case were run by funeral homes. You know, as a boy in Bridgeport, I remember Hawkins funeral home being dispatched to traffic accidents. I had forgotten that odd bit of history.
