As insightful a essay as you are likely to find anywhere into the state the irrational, politically destructive right, and a complicit media, appeared this morning on The New York Times Week in Review. Entitled "My Near Death Panel Experience," it was written by Congressman Earl Blumenauer (Democratic from Oregon)about his experiences with the health care bill. While it is terrifying to read, it has a happy ending.
I recommend it for its instructive value and to help innculate us from an all too common disease the next time we find it spreading in our communities.
