Weekend read: Dead man walking

My recommended read for this weekend is this sobering paper by Stillman and Tailor in the New England Journal of Medicine. It describes some shocking personal stories, but also this powerful statistic: nearly 45,000 American adults die each year because they have no medical coverage. If you only read one thing this weekend, make it this.
