A diary excerpt from a woman with terminal cancer and her experience with the National Health Service:
A specialist nurse called from the hospital to say she’d had a chat with my oncologist and that “radiotherapy was now an option again”. Problem is, I haven’t seen my oncologist for ages, and no-one seems to be in charge of me. It’s just a succession of departments and people calling all day with no coordination whatsoever. I want to have radiotherapy, in a couple of weeks, but should I book it now in case I lose my slot? What about my bone scan? It’s never been mentioned again.
Read it all.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
