Letter to the editor in today's Post-DispatchMimi Signor’s letter ("Anecdotes can show problems of health care system," Oct. 9) hits the health care nail squarely on the head. To paraphrase former state Rep. Tim Harlan (D-Columbia), who was instrumental in legislating landmark health care reform in Missouri, the plural of "anecdotal evidence" is data.Every time I hear a politician rail to the effect that we have the best health care system in the world, and that we shouldn’t tinker with it, I am stunned. We still rank a shameful 38th in the industrialized world in health care outcomes and report 100,000 deaths annually attributed to medical error. We should be doing everything possible to change that.Leah S. Rubin • Wildwoodhttp://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion/mailbag/health-care-sys...
