An interesting way to estimate the effect of bureaucracy and 3rd party payers on the cost of healthcare. Apparently when a hospital or doctor deals strictly in cash payments, the price of healthcare falls by roughly 50%.

Land of the free?

A recent news story regarding my reaction to the Fort Lauderdale shootings. Florida is one of only 6 states which makes their airports into victim disarmament zones. Sad that the victims and other citizens around them were legally prevented from defending themselves.

This time the calls for further disarmament seem muted. Perhaps people are beginning to see that more laws or massive screening of innocent people would not have prevented this tragedy?

A thoughtful look at some of the reasons to be skeptical of current policy recommendations based on the belief in anthropogenic global warming.

I should note that my current personal view is that the issue needs more seriously to be recast as how much anthropogenic warming there might be - not whether there is any at all - as that is arguing that the contribution is literally zero.
