Bringing the Town Halls to You

Well, I just volunteered to go stop by Rep. Pomeroy's office to let him know that I'm a fan of universal healthcare, something that I wasn't aware I felt passionately about until I almost got into a fistfight with my grandmother within six hours of landing in Fargo. We've had political disagreements before, but this was the first time that I actually started shaking, and also the first time that I ever used the word "racist." (The two things were very much related.)

Natalia needs to get back from camping soon, or she's going to come back to find me erecting a free clinic in my front yard.

I got in a fight with my grandpa about healthcare once, when he said all people without healthcare are just "lazy and worthless." I figured I had him there when I said, "Yeah, but mom and I didn't have healthcare for like 8 years when I was growing up. Does that mean that we were just 'lazy and worthless'?" He paused, considered, and said "Well, yes, I guess it does mean exactly that." Wowzers.
