I'm Beginning To Smell the Coffee











Happy In Bag readers rely on me to bring them cutting edge information and opinions. So steel yourself for this shocking revelation- our medical system is broken. I don't want to come across as an angry pedagogue or as an annoying crybaby, so I'll spare you the details of the mind-numbingly slow and breathtakingly expensive initial steps to repair my damaged knee. The process is so awful that I'm suddenly tempted to do the unthinkable.

    I had an experience with the medical system just over a year ago for a badly fractured wrist. The service I received was first rate. The costs, OTOH, were not so cool. Over $50K before the insurance reduced it to allowable costs of $35k.

    you don't have to do the unthinkable. just a coin toss would get about the same results.

    UL- Ouch.

    M- I beg to differ.

    Panos- If I was a one-issue voter, I'd put a HRC sign in my yard.

    The issue being 'stop rickrolling in our lifetime'?

    Panos, you know I wouldn't play a mean and disturbing trick designed to upset you. (Sorry.)
