    The Blacklist was a rather nasty piece of business, many actors had to take whatever roles were offered to eke out a living.

    But funny that our ladies mention Burgess Meredith, he made three appearances on the original Twilight Zone besides “Time Enough to Last”:

    “Mr. Dingle, the Strong” – where his character was given the strength of 300 men.

    “Printer’s Devil” – where he played a reporter with a nose for news before it happened, which he used to tempt a small-time publisher.

    and “The Obsolete Man”, where Meredith played… a librarian who was condemned to death by a future state that had outlawed books and religion.

    I would object to “both sides-ism” here, the Democrats have been ready to make adjustments to the ACA all along, but the Republicans have turned it into a political football/cause, and won’t lift a finger to improve care. To the point that half of the states under GOP control still refuse the Medicaid expansion.

    Otherwise Richard is right, something like healthcare is too large to be left totally to the “free market”, it’s done better and less expensively as government.

    Yes the experience of the other well-developed nations suggest that the government solution should cover a basic set of care, and the private market should probably make up 15-20% of the overall market. That’s how you keep public costs reasonable, and allow the better-off to have their “Cadillac” coverage.

    I got 3 results. One of which was the previous episode of this very comic. One came up as a search for license plates. The third for a Pinterist page for an artist that does robots.

    I don’t remember getting just 3 results on a Google search. Zero yes, as little as 10 or so, sure.. three is a new one on me.

    There are quite a few stories about pro athletes getting swindled on ‘investments’.

    The best advice the family could give would be to also hire an independent auditor to keep an eye on the money.
