your p.a.d. isn't just poor circulation in your legs causing you pain. ok-what is it? dad, it more than doubles your risk of a heart attack or stroke. i can't keep anything from you. you better read about plavix. if you have p.a.d., plavix can help protect you from a heart attack or stroke. plavix helps keep blood platelets from sticking together and forming clots- the cause of most heart attacks and strokes. dad don't put this off. p.a.d. more than doubles your risk of a heart attack or stroke. promise me you'll talk with your doctor about plavix? i'll do it. i promise.
(announcer) if you have a stomach ulcer or other condition that causes bleeding, you should not use plavix. taking plavix alone or with some other medicines including aspirin may increase bleeding risk. tell your doctor before planning surgery or taking aspirin or other medicines with plavix, especially if you've had a stroke. some medicines that are used to treat heartburn or stomach ulcers, like prilosec, may affect how plavix works, so tell your doctor if you are taking other medicines. if fever, unexplained weakness or confusion develops, tell your doctor promptly. these may be signs of ttp, a rare, but potentially life-threatening condition, reported sometimes less than 2 weeks after starting plavix. other rare but serious side effects may occur. >> in a denver courtroom

>> last week's water main break in dundalk is another reminder of the aging infrastructure facing most american cities. the 72-inch water main break came without warning taking on a major section of road and flooding the homes of several hundred families. as the families left without power or water for days, now rummaging through clothes, water-soaked appliances, the questions of responsibility and prevention begin. while the city, the state, and even senator mikulski talked about coming to the aid of the families, some insurance companies did not respond to policy holers or doe clared their policies did not cover the damage. many of these families will be in limbo longer as they try to get their lives back in order. there is no question the aging of our communities needs to be ad depressed, and it is not a
question of if but when another community will face similar circumstances. with the maryland general assembly session approaching, legislators have another actionable item staring them in the face -- what can maryland do to ease the problem of the failing infrastructure. it is a problem that affects us all. it is a simple but difficult solution -- money. the aging of our communities is another important item that must be addressed during this difficult times. we believe it must move to the head of the list.
