[The Life of Shaun #197] Sicko

I am sure I am the last one to do so, but I finally saw "Sicko" tonight; it was absolutely abhorrent.  That anyone could be denied medical care in America is ludicrous.  I've been on this side of socialised medicine long enough that I began to forget what it's like there, the fear and stress you have about your healthcare.  It takes seeing that to remember how lucky I am to not have to worry about it.

Actually, no, I am not lucky - that's how it should be.  We're not lucky here - it's just effed up over there.

Anyway, if I am not the last one to see "Sicko", get it.  Be appalled.  Maybe now, with change in November, maybe something can happen.

Happy to be on this little island tonight,
