I just watched a clip on Anderson Cooper's CNN program that showed hospitals putting homeless patients in taxis and dumping them onto the street at skid-row locations. Some of these patients had no legs. Some were mentally impaired. All sick and helpless.

Can anyone say that we have the best healthcare system in the world?
Can anyone say that we even come close to having the best healthcare system in the world?

Why are we not dying of shame over this?

Do any of you realize how thin and fine a thread exists in your own life that keeps you from experiencing this same kind of abuse and horror?
