Another take on the article by Interfluidity.

As background, Alice's husband, referenced below, died of cancer and Alice was stuck with a bill of $902,452 that included charges for diabetes test strips of $18/each vs Amazon's price of $27.85 for a box of 50.

The burden of citizenship is to share in, and hold people to account for, the injustices experienced by our neighbors. Alice was f*cking ripped off to the tune of any semblance of economic and financial security she might ever have had at the very moment that her husband was dying of cancer. This is beyond awful. This is mortal sin in any religion worth the name. This is pure evil.
