Today’s Quote – 2007.05.07

“Lacking a national health system, “the U. S. occupies last place among the major industrialized countries … in child mortality, life expectancy, and visits to the doctor,” although it probably leads the world in politicians who talk about “family values.”” Paul Kennedy

  1. Indeed. Believe it or not, I once had an online “debate” with an Internet Tubes acquaintance who was OK with the possibility of innocent people being executed. That totally blew me away, and there was nothing I could say to shift her position. She’s since changed her mind, though I don’t know why (we don’t email too frequently). Her son is about to ship off to Chimpy’s Excellent Mesopotamian Adventure, and I know she’s freaked about that.

    BTW, if you don’t regularly read Blue Jersey, it will keep you updated on some of the goings-on in this Fair State. 🙂
