Medical History Card for Inaugural Visitors

The crowds will be big and, despite the best efforts of city and federal officials, there could be chaos around the inauguraion. To prepare for the worst-case-scenario --out-of-town visitors coming to Washington without their medical histories handy -- Suburban Hospital in Montgomery County (Md.) is urging people to fill out, print out and carry with them this medical history card. The card can help the staff at any area hospital better understand a person's primary care physician, emergency contact phone numbers and previous medical conditions.

Wow, those guys are idiots! They say it's "designed to be kept with your identification cards, such as a driver's license," yet it's larger than 8.5 x 11! Who's going to carry around something that big, even (especially?) folded up?
