Hawking speaks

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

In the pages of The Guardian, Stephen Hawking has a few words about the Investor's Business Daily claim that his life would be "essentially worthless" under the UK's National Health Service:

"I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS," he told us. "I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived."

Something here is worthless. And it's not him.

update (9:32pm):
I just listened to Rachel Maddow call the IBD editorial "a tremendous avalanche of fail." Bravo!

Ah, medicine. :) Thanks for the link. I haven't looked in on TRP in awhile. Shame. Could have been a salve for the sideshow.

Now where's my waffle, Marge?

You know the other day when I advocated a debate between marginalized pols like Ron Paul and Chomsky, I wasn't supporting bringing firearms to presidential meetings with [a] naive paraphrasing of Jefferson on a sign.

Gee CD, you reckon that asshole refuses Medicare for his parents? Or do you think he will refuse Social Security when he retires as an example for all of us to follow?
