RE your tagline, OK, I looked it up, wikipedia:
= = =
During the winter of 1813 as part of the War of 1812, the Battle of Frenchtown occurred near the river between British and Native American troops under the command of British General Henry Procter and Native American chief Tecumseh, and a small division of Kentucky militia under command of General James Winchester.

Outnumbered and facing total slaughter, Winchester surrendered with British assurances of safety of the prisoners, but the next day many were massacred and scalped by the Native Americans without British intervention. The slaughter was only ended by the return to the area of Tecumseh, who had been away. He admonished the British officers for not stopping such behavior.

The Massacre of the River Raisin became a rallying cry (”Remember the River Raisin”) particularly for Kentuckians, and American troops returned in the spring to drive the British from Michigan forever.

Yikes!
I was referring to the medication they use sometimes (maybe often) for these types of procedures. Apparently it doesn’t really knock you out, it just makes you unable to form memory. Which is an entirely different thing. Surely tho, if they are actually cutting on you, they do knock you out.

I wonder how many Kentuckians realize that 9 counties in Kentucky are named after men who died here?
