Watching Michael Moore’s Sicko. It’s horrifying my wife while I marvel at how an otherwise developed country can do this to its own citizens (and I’m a health economist).

If you know enough Spanish to be amused by dodgy sub-titles (look for the Freedom Fries one, it’s great), you can catch the doco here.

And people wonder why I’m not staying in the US any longer than I need to. You should definitely watch it – I’m sure plenty of you (or people you know) will muster all their cynicism in the face of basic facts (the least equitable, efficient or cost-effective health care system in the OECD). They’re the ones keeping the rest of you down.
