some things [Sep. 7th, 2005|03:34 pm]

[Current Music |X - "Crystal Ship"]

Here is an excellent article about health care by Malcolm Gladwell (author of The Tipping Point, which I highly recommend!) - talks about "moral hazards" and why they don't apply nearly as much to health care as some think.

This has been around for a while, but Michael Chertoff saying that "no one" had predicted the disaster of Hurricane Katrina is so patently wrong that CNN comes right out and says so in the byline. The New Orleans paper is highly critical of FEMA, which seems appropriate given what I've read and seen.

That book looks wonderful. When my stack size decreases a bit, I might read it. Do you own it such that I could borrow, or did you read it elsewhere?

I do own it, and you may certainly borrow it!
