  • Lee Evans needs our help

    Whether it's 'free' or not what he's contributed to the US goes way past any financial contributions he may or may not have made. The idea that someone does or doesn't get life saving medical treatment because they don't have the money is aborhant and worthy of a third word country that can't afford universal health care, not one that considers itself the pre-eminent country in the world but that chooses not to for political reasons.
    i deserve extra credit

    That blog entry in "The Nation" is the only quasi-media report that I have seen that even mentions health insurance problems.

    All the other traditional sources I have seen say he is resting in the hospital and waiting until a surgeon returns from a trip to further evaluate his surgical needs.
