A reader responded to yesterday's blog about health care:
I think it is immoral for health care to be treated as a commodity, as we do in this country. For someone to die because they don't have money for treatment (or for basic health screening and prevention) is as outrageous as having to fork over one's credit card to a firefighter or a policeman before they'll act in an emergency.
I thought the analogy to fire fighting or police protection was perfect. What do you think?
As an aside: For those who read the newspapers on line, do you find it a bit hard to absorb some of the ads first thing in the morning? This morning the Washington Post ran an ad across the top of the front page with a cute bunny hopping along and the tag line: Do you know rabbits don't vomit?
