RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

Today in socialized health care

The Daily Mail reported a few days ago that doctors in Britain's National Health Service have been told to try to talk women out of epidurals and caesarians to save money.

Since here in the US, women are more likely to support PPACA than men, hats off to our brave sisters, who are apparently willing to put up with the often excruciating, day-long pain of a natural childbirth in order to save the gummint a few hundred bucks! The Proletariat thanks you, comrades!
