One drop in a flood. This is important to me because of what happened to my mother who suffers from Alzheimer. She was taken to the cleaners by a number of scoundrels. We had to take control of her social security or she would have been pushing a shopping cart. She was furious about this until her Alzheimer got so bad she no longer remembers anything except her childhood.
