Chris- very well put, I agree with you about Obama and politicans. And you know what, I didn't agree with the government getting involved in banking but I think it has forced some changes that needed to be done. Maybe that will happen in healthcare.

Thank you also for posting about your friend and his situation, I know that was probably not easy for you on several levels but it is good to put a "face" on the situations we hear about. My heart goes out to them- when ever I think my own situation is bad, I hear of someone's that is worse. A reality check for me but very sad to hear about others who suffer.

Thank you!
