All that you touch, and all that you see, all that you taste, all you feel.
And all that you love, and all that you hate, all you distrust, all that you save.
And all that you give, and all that you deal, and all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal.
And all you create, and all you destroy, and all that you do, and all that you say.
All that you eat, and everyone you meet, and all that you slight, and everyone you fight.
And all that is now, and all that is gone, and all that's to come,
and everything under the Sun is in tune
but the Sun is eclipsed by the Moon.

Late day linkee-poos

You wonder why I keep talking about how privatization doesn't work (especially when it comes to Medicare additions). It's because history is instructive. We've tried it twice. Hasn't worked. It costs us more, provides us with less, and just doesn't accomplish any of the stated goals of the plan (the unstated goal of lining corporate pockets it's pretty good at). As a side argument, the new program is very much like Obamacare. Also see notes in that last article on the difference between insuring 20-40somethings and 65+somethings, both in costs and needs. Also one of the reasons I support single payor.

SC Butler, I write because I'm a gambler.

ASC II art on twitter. For us geeks of a certain age, this is very cool. Raise your hand if you remember printing out photos on a dot matrix printer using letters to provide grey values. This preceded the rage of the late 90s of making large photographic images by compositing smaller images in a digital pointillism construction.

Why does the phrase "Two prominent dollar signs." keep springing to mind?
