If you don't know who that is, then read this WaPo article.

As David Frum puts it, Driver is going to be the "bloody shirt" waved by the socialized medicine crowd. Frum, by the way, does an excellent job arguing that it was parental neglect, not the health care system, that was responsible for Deamonte' tragic demise.

Over at the National Center blog, I examine how good socialized systems are at providing dental care (in short, not good), while over at Cato, Michael Cannon makes the point that government regulations here in the U.S. actually make it harder to get good dental care by imposing restrictions on dental hygienists.
