Joy Behar at AARP’s Inspire Awards [2]: “My mother died of heart disease. My uncles, my grandparents, the whole mishpucha – so we’re trying to get the word out.”
“As the county health system shifts strategy to deliver care with leaner resources, many who provide medical services say they are approaching a breaking point. An analysis by the nurses union predicted that the county health system’s 2011 budget would cut about 1,000 jobs, including 114 nurses and 19 doctors, to help close a $487 million countywide budget gap.” – Cook County, Illinois’ problems providing care [3].
Chris Jones reflecting on that crazy Metrodome collapse</a> (video! [4]): “For some people, that’s a depressing thought: There will come a time when nothing we have done today will matter. For me, it’s always been a liberating idea: There will come a time when nothing we have done today will matter.”
