So I think I do understand what set everybody off. I failed to predict that everybody was going to infer those types of associations even though I did not imply them. My failure has lead to hurt feelings, and for that I regret ever posting in the first place. I certainly wasn't trying to be hurtful at all. I'm really ashamed that Booa felt so much personal pain over it.

Thank you. After I read your response to the first set of reactions I realized that you hadn't intended to paint people with medical debt with the same brush we use for cruises and bling. But the perception that you were doing so was upsetting.

As I said in an earlier response, it's possible to separate heedless, unnecessary debt, from crucial, necessary debt. Perhaps, if there is another occasion, you might want to clarify or explain the difference before the board erupts?

it's been a bad couple of weeks at this end, too.
