Thom pointing out how you and you're wife are dealing with a disease and the current health care system seems quite appropriate. It personalizes it, and to me that makes the weight of your words all that more pressing.

Sometimes even what looks like nature is man-made. As I look out my window at work I see trees and grass, but it's all landscaping, and that was someone's idea too. Someone had to figure out how to get that result without later suffering landslides, stagnant puddles, cracked pavement from tree roots, etc.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
