Okay folks, I still write checks and use cash.....I do very little online, so I'm not about to put my healthcare information on there! I'm usually one to try new things and think of myself as quite progressive, but I'm just not comfortable with the Google option of Health records on the Web. It's going to take alot of prodding for this consumer to store my data in portable electronic files!

I told you we'd hear more. Bob Sillen got fired earlier this year as the almost unfettered overseer of reforming California's dangerous prison health care system. And now the state Office of Inspector General (OIG) has reviewed his (and his staff's) spending habits.


Looks like the easiest to explain (though Sillen apparently couldn't say who went or why) was a bill for $432 for one-night's stay for five staffers in Hanford. (What, no ice cream at Superior?)

YouTube service was disrupted on 2/24/08....this apparently was an effort by a foreign government to block access to some video clips they did not agree with. The government's telecommunications authority regulator of that nation's telecom, ordered the internet service providers to block access to a SPECIFIC YouTube video. But in a bizarre twist, the government's efforts to block the clip wound up affecting YouTube users world-wide.

Part of the glib gab about health care reform in the U.S. goes this way: "Every person should be guaranteed a basic level of care (appendix removal, broken arm fixed -- the VW Beatle, Yugo, frugal car, standard-of-care of the moment), and those who can afford more (fanny implants, kidney transplant, stem cell therapy) should be allowed to buy more expensive (Bugatti, Ferrari, Pagani) care."

The belt buckles open and stay unfurled several times a year. Confirmations, baptisms, weddings, quincineras, ends of fastings. An Orange Cove priest once told me that refried beans (cooked in lard, of course) were his favorite pig-out food and, since every parishioner had a slightly different recipe, there was no way to say no.


But there may be now. The Washington Post reports that the high cost of health insurance for ministers and their families is jeopardizing the finances -- and the mission dollars -- of some mainline Protestant denominations.
