The Republican Plan for Health Care Reform

As far as I can tell, the Republicans are opposed to a public insurance option because it would be a bloated, inefficient bureaucracy that rations mediocre care with long waiting lists and no patient choice...

...and that would represent unfair competition to private insurance companies.

So, yeah, that makes perfect sense.

The dangers of folk wisdom

Folk wisdom killed my aunt. She used to tell us all the time: never go food shopping when you're hungry. Well, one day she woke up hungry and there was no food in the house. They found her three weeks later, on the kitchen floor. She had starved to death.

Let that be a lesson.

An Odd Batman Moment

I was watching "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" (I guess the Courageous and the Fearless were busy that day) with my son, and apparently Batman now has a dog who occasionally accompanies him on missions.

The odd part, is the dog is wearing a mask over his face... so he won't be recognized, I guess. But who exactly is he hiding his identity from? Because if it's the other dogs, he's wearing the mask on the wrong end.

Thought for the day

My son seems to be growing up ambidextrous. I'm so jealous. I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.
