Reading at the Crossroads

Reading at the Crossroads is an archive for columns and letters which appeared in the Terre Haute Tribune Star. I also blog here when my patience is exhausted by what I feel is irritating, irrational and/or ironic in life. --gary daily

John Edwards in 2008 -- 4

Health Care

"We have to stop using words like 'access to health care' when we know with certainty those words mean something less than universal care. Who are you willing to leave behind without the care he needs? Which family? Which child? We need a truly universal solution, and we need it now."
John Edwards [go here for program in full]

What was the name of that book that thrashed the press for failing to do its job in the run up to the disastrous Iraq War? Oh yeah, it was Now They Tell Us .It remains to be seen if the media will ever find the candidacy of John Edwards on the simplistic two rail track, Hillary v. Barak, story line they run endlessly by the voters. This is a track to nowhere as far as issues and programs are concerned. But Edwards' views are getting out. Maybe this video will shame and snap a few journalists out of their Obama/Clinton trance.

See the "What About John? video. Go here for video.
