SiCKO Arrives

by Scott Smith

I watched SiCKO via a stream the other day. Very effective film. On my iGoogle page, there was a headline about the film saying it is Moore’s attempt to shame us. Probably true.

Scoble wrote about a blog his wife, Maryam, follows. Derek Miller just found out he has stage 4 metastatic colorectal cancer. His post about getting the news is not surprising. He’s upset and angry. By the way, he’s not even 40.

Please read his post and note what’s missing. Where’s the part about him worried he’ll sink his wife with hospital bills, causing her to file bankruptcy. Where’s the part about him worried that his children won’t have a college fund after his surgery.

You won’t find it. He’s a Canadian.
