Its all in the timing. This is true for so many things, is it not?
Among several other experts, Dr. Ralph de la Torre, the CEO of Steward Health Care System, was recently interviewed by Bloomberg Businessweek about the current state of healthcare in America (RX for Reform: Fix This/ Health Care, 2/27/123/4/12, pp. 55-60). The subject was raised that the big problem with healthcare today is the very high price tag for the patients last six months of life. De la Torre responds to that declaring, No. The real problem is that you never know when the last six months are (p. 60).
Perhaps we have echoes of, If I knew I would live this long when I was younger, I would have taken better care of myself.
The healthcare debate is certainly a serious matter. But it is never too serious to not generate a chuckle every now and then. From what I know, having a sense of humor helps us live longer and healthier anyway.
I hope you have a great laugh today!
