  • Quote: "If we doctors threw all our medicines into the sea, it would be that much better for our Patients and that much worse for the fishes." ~ Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendel Holmes, MD.
  • Article: Bernanke Recommends Congress Take Up Immigration.

    "There are a lot of things Congress can do…there’s tax policy, there’s immigration policy, trade policy. [...]

    I think frankly, this is a topic that I can never get much traction on — I think our immigration policy which restricts severely the number of highly-trained skilled immigrants is a problem because bringing those kind of folks in helps our high-tech industries develop more competitively — become more competitive."

  • Member of the day was Barbara, who won a copy of "Screwed: The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class – And What We Can Do About It" for her call about health care.
  • Article: Three More Senators Join Public Option Effort by Ryan Grim.

    "Sen. Casey thinks that all options should be considered for moving forward legislation to insure more Americans, crack down on insurance company abuses, and get a handle on health care spending that is raising the deficit and threatening our economy," said Casey spokesman Larry Smar."
