  1. Today would have been a really good day to be in the hari-kari short sword business. I could have made a fortune—even given them away.

    If my youngest child had had protection such as the PPACA affords, I would not have had to pay over $100,000 keeping him alive. Even though he did not have asthma until we came to the D/FW area, my insurance company refused to pay for his care because they deemed that it was a “pre-existing” condition. Too bad their parents never bothered to get married!
