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?
