Toothache

Not to be a total bummer on a Wednesday afternoon, but has anyone else read about this?

I don't even know what to say about an article like that. There are so many people, politicians and businessmen, that should be held accountable for this kid's death that, were we to get them all into a courtroom, it'd look like the starting line of the New York Marathon. But that, of course, will never happen. There will be a statement of apology issued and... that's probably it. Last I checked, though, a statement of apology hadn't yet been the cause of someone rising from the grave.

Seriously, shit like this makes me want grab "The System" by the ears and shake it as hard as I can. It makes me want to take the Fung Wah down to D.C. and start cold cocking people on Capitol Hill. It makes me want to break things in an liberal guilt-inspired, white-boy rage.

Cruel, unnecessary tragedies are the key to my Hulking out, I guess.

Poetically, I have to go to the dentist tomorrow.

My friend who didn't have health insurance went to the County Hospital where I guess once a week, they have dentists come in for this stuff.

Actually, 'poetically' sounds like I'm making light of the kid.

I was going to use 'ironically', but that isn't really irony.

Or maybe it is, since I have insurance, and he didn't .

I give up.

No worries, Big Daddy, I know what you meant.

This really makes me think that I might should maybe take advantage of my company's insurance and get my ass in a dentist's chair, pronto. It's been at least a couple of years, if not more.

I, too, am filled with liberal white rage. Actually, I'm just really sad about that. I should prob also go to the dentist, even though our insurance is crap especially with dental.

I used to feel "liberal white rage" over things like this, too, but now I just feel kinda irritated about it because I see it every day (here's the part where I mention I work in an ER).

The thing is, your line-up of people in the courtroom to be ultimately held responsible for this would include you, me, and just about every other American citizen. Until Americans demand universal health care for everyone, poor people will keep dying like this every now and then.

You're very right about that, much as I hate to admit it. I'd much rather blame the corporate fat cats than myself (because I like myself) but it's hard to deny that we, the people, share in the blame for allowing corrupt systems to carry on.

Oh my! I just found out one of my friends learned that the cause of the health problems she's been plagued with for years is an abscess! It's going to be a long, painful, and very expensive process to correct, but at least she found out in time.
