No, this is not an image of a Ross Bleckner painting. It is an image of the H1N1 virus. Which I will hopefully not acquire thanks to the H1N1 shot I got this morning. I was the first one in the door when the clinic opened at 10:00 so I didn’t even have to wait.
And let’s give a special shout-out to Congress and President Obama for making a HUGE step toward health care reform. With the Senate’s vote this morning it seems likely that change is indeed a comin’. No the bill isn’t perfect, not even close. But when you consider that the plan will make it possible for 30 million more Americans to be covered by health insurance, it is a really big step in the right direction.
