comment How to Determine if Layer is a Point
Same here, although I have never done this in a .pyt, just in normal script tools. I assume it behaves the same though.

comment Calculate Date Field - today's date from datetime.date.today
That is completely understandable. I too feared the cursors when I was first getting started with Python. However, as you get more comfortable with Python, I think you will find the cursors are much more flexible. Also, as I mentioned in my original answer, the cursors have much better performance. At the county I used to work for, a GIS consultant had written a script for a very long process that used the field calculator many times and this took over 2 hours to run. When I got better with Python, I rewrote the script and used cursors instead of the field calc and it ran in under 15 min.

comment Is there a public API that can be accessed with Python and will geocode Points of Interests?
This is pretty cool, I just found a free python api for geocoding and reverse geocoding addresses. Take a look at this page, it should do what you want. I tested with a couple hospital names and it returned coordinates. It uses the google maps Geocoder: code.xster.net/pygeocoder/wiki/Home

comment How I can reverse numbers in a string without reversing any text?
Thanks @mnpeterson...I decided to add an edited version that will ensure that the groups of numbers would be split properly. The way I had it before, all the numbers would have been strung together into one even they were separated in the original text. Props to artwork21 as well.
