It is the good Adam contemplating his own virtue.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Socialized medicine, some still cry, but it’s long been socialized, with those covered paying for those who are underinsured. American medicine is simply socialized badly, penny wise and pound foolish.

There is no external vantage point, no first philosophy.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
