Helen ...

Blood tests went out the door about 20 years ago in most states that had the rule. The test was the Wasserman test for syphilis (sp?). Some states have a waiting period, others (apparently Florida is one) don't.

I always wondered about the syph test and what the reasoning/logic was behind it.
