Havoc in Hollister /Motorcyclist Horde Stages Riotous Rally

event  that occurred at the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA)-sanctioned  Gypsy Tour motorcycle rally in Hollister, California from July 3 to 6,  1947.
On July 3, 1947, festivities in Hollister began. But as  previously mentioned, the popularity of motorcycles had grown  dramatically and this rise in popularity caused one of the main problems  of this event: massive attendance. Around 4,000 motorcyclists flooded  Hollister, almost doubling the population of the small town. They came  from all over California and the United States, even from as far away as  Connecticut and Florida.Motorcycle groups in attendance included the 13  Rebels, Pissed Off Bastards of Bloomington, the Boozefighters, the  Market Street Commandos, the Top Hatters Motorcycle Club, and the  Galloping Goose Motorcycle Club. Approximately ten percent of attendees  were women. The town was completely unprepared for the number of people  that arrived, since not nearly as many people had participated in the  pre-war years.

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
