Just in case

Brian Kaller, Restoring Mayberry

Officials or the media may or may not be overreacting. New diseases crop up all the time, and most are not serious. ... This might become very serious, or not, but the risk of death to any of us is statistically low – except in the long run.

A conversation with Gail-The-Actuary

Dan Bednarz , Health after Oil

“The idea of scaling back is a real difficulty for these growth-based medical institutions… and how do you deal with a bigger and bigger uninsured population?
