Coincidentally, I was just talking about this, with Sarah. She wanted to know why she was paying so much for Medicare. I told her that it was insurance for health care in old age, but that here in Anchorage, no doctors would see Medicare patients so it was essentially a euthanasia program for people on their 65th birthday. "Oh, like the Eskimos used to do with ice bergs," she said.
Yeah, except they didn't have to pay for the ice berg.
