My wife and I split up many responsibilities, including newsreading. I handle domestic issues; she follows the international beat. (“Honey, how’s the war going?”) But she did point me to a fascinating discussion on her favorite website, that of the BBC.
In light of the opening of SiCKO, which favorably compares the health system of Britain and other countries to that of America, the BBC asked what its readers thought of their health systems. Perhaps uniquely, they got hundreds of comments, from not just the U.S. and Great Britain but all over the Europe and the world. Lots of opinions, from all parts of the political spectrum, from a truly international readership.
