They didn’t check with Economic Development before running this one

A letter to the editor from this morning’s Rapid City Journal:

Fee for doctor’s  report an  hour of hard work

      I recently had skin surgery.  I asked for a copy of the doctor’s report.  Fee?  Five dollars, plus photo copy of driver’s license; 25 cents, plus 44 cent stamp, and the inconvenience of driving to the bank for photo  copy.   

     I feel sure the doctor’s report fee included time for his report.

     For many in South Dakota $5.69, after taxes, equates to pay for one hour of work.
