Political outburst

An idea for health care: If we’re going to go into economic crippling debt for this, maybe can we just bypass insurance companies and have the gov directly build clinics, pay for the education of docs who go into primary care, and pass tort reform? Then at least we’d have ...

Fire on the mountain

I took a run this morning while it was still dark. Got past the houses so I could see the mountains and saw an orange glow in one of the canyons. http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=460&sid=4104232&pid=18 That picture must have been taken last night because there was a lot less glow this morning and ...
