How the rest of the world sees us

I like to read the international press for two reasons; 1- I read things that never appear in the US press, and 2- I like to see how we look to the world.

The other morning this popped out at me.

"Oregon's Healthcare Lottery

In what is believed to be the first such move, a US state is running a lottery in which the prize is health insurance. "

The story is absolutely accurate as far as I can tell. And they make it seem just a ludicrous as it actually is. How did we get numb to this situation?
Wow. What is really interesting to me is that even the forlorn hope that this lottery will bring attention to the situation is lost when none of our papers pick up the story and publicize it.
