Read These Now Because We ALL Need Health Care

Here is a special Saturday edition of the morning readings. I went on a sudden road trip that was more like a journey to Mordor without the success. It was a bit personal so I won't really post about it. I will share one warning: NEVER get into a golf cart with a drunk at an elevation above 4400'. No one was harmed but the bumper of my car. ARGHHH!

One more thing before I start linking. I cut my subscription to the Asheville Citizen-Times to the weekend because it works better as recycling than reading material. On the front page this morning beside an important story about 500,000 jobs vanishing in November is a GINORMOUS picture of O.J. Simpson. I mean HUGE. It takes up over half the page and extends below the fold. UGH!
