    I got an interesting insight from my boss about buying lottery tickets. When she was asked if she bought lottery tickets, she said she didn't because she "works too hard." I think her point was her...

    From this article in the NYTimes today, talking about one huge reason our system is bloated:


    As a matter of ethics and equality, this should be O.K.; sticking with a system that is the source of...

    Depends on what you call suffering. If you're talking about the suffering of one of my latest interviewees, who has diabetes and her HbA1c numbers were really going down due to her medication, but...

    I will never believe that Bernie Sanders would ever put working class people in a position where they're worse off. He said as much at the debates, and I believe him.

    It's a beautiful house, and what a great location on the water/canals! Having lived in the NE my whole life, lanais with in-ground pools are strange and wonderful things to me.

    BTW, how are you...

    Absolutely! That's good for the employers, too! They don't have to pay for their employees' healthcare, which frees up money for other business needs. Also, their employees that want to do something...

    Yes, well said. That's how easy it can be, and it would cut out at least 2 levels of middlemen and give negotiating power over drugs and hospitals to a central body. CMS functions quite well, IMO.

    OK, CL... I take you at your word. I'm starting to think you may be more like Cervantes/Don Quixote... at least the words in the soliloquy below are similar to the words you've expressed about...

    Compared to what I was paying in the private sector (1600/month), I'm thrilled with Medicare. We have Supplemental Plan F (which is being phased out apparently) which covers so much. We have a very...

    My feeling is it's the bloated system. I make more than my primary care doctor, and I only have a B.A. I think the "long waiting times" is a myth. We do have a litigious response to medical...

    Well, even though I'm going to nibble at the hand that feeds me, I'll give you my perspective, FWIW. Here are some of the dynamics behind the "greedy Big Pharma" diatribe:

    Yes, when I first saw that Tim Gunn wasn't going to be on, and replaced by Christian Siriano, I was disappointed, but once I saw him with the contestants, I changed my mind--he is a very good mentor....

    Great recap, but I think Bernie held up. He came under a lot of attack, but that's to be expected given he's the biggest threat to the other candidates at this point.

    I know! I feel sorry for the moderators! The gloves are off!!

    ETA: to be honest, this is almost painful to watch.. It's like watching your kids fight and you can't get in there to stop them.

    I'm sorry, CL, for misinterpreting the problem. The way I see it, you didn't frame your need in terms of suggested books and tools to learn how to deal with suffering teenagers. You framed it as a...
