“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Bills, Bills, Bills

That's nothing, NYT. With my heart beating too fast I was driven one block to hospital in Philly. The bill was $13000.

7 hours of monitoring in hospital came to $11000.

Woah! you have to move to Canada.... not that we don't treat animals and the earth and a whole lot of peeps like crap, but at least you can go to the hospital and not be further crapped upon with bills.

I hope you're o.k.

Just noticed this post. Christ, when did that happen? Best wishes. I'm turning 45 soon, have been out of martial art practice (and therefore out of shape) for a couple years, and have just begun to have annoying & slightly scary things happen myself. I'm curious: do you miss the British healthcare system, & is it really all Michael Moore cracks it up to be?
