(Author’s Note: This is selective history, rather than an exhaustive history of UT Health, told from my perspective. There are many founding faculty, students, alumni, administrators and staff whose stories are not acknowledged, but not as a diminution of their role in UT Health’s history. In an exhaustive history, it may be judged that the events related here in are not worthy of inclusion. That will be for others to judge. This document is intended to tell “a” story of UT Health as I experienced it and as I remember it.)

Forty-three million and counting — that’s the number of Corollas that Toyota has sold globally since it began building the model in the fall of 1966. The Toyota Corolla made its United States debut in 1968 and has evolved over the decades, becoming roomier and more efficient.

Q. I defaulted on a retail jewelry contract in Florida in 2003 for a total of $1,721. I am suddenly receiving phone calls from a debt collector threatening to have me served court papers to sue me. He says the debt now is just under $6,000 with interest. He told me unless I make arrangements immediately, I will also owe lawyer’s fees and court costs when they sue me. He said if I pay $500 right away, he would make it all go away. This sounds like a scam to me. Can they sue me 12 years later?

I have known for years that hurt people hurt people. This thinking was reinforced when I served on the staff of the largest church in the state of Georgia for more than 20 years, and in our vast congregation of over 9,000 people from all over the area, we saw true-to-life examples of the pain inflicted on others by those who had been hurt years ago. Later, while working in an international ministry and traveling all over America and in some foreign countries, we saw even more evidence of the same truth.

Q. I received an item in the mail that I did not order. I called the company and they told me I either had to return it at my expense or pay for it if I kept it. It doesn’t seem fair that a company can force me to spend money to return something I don’t want and did not order.
