People are paying me now to write comments on their blogs. Oddly, this doesn't even seem strange to me. In a world where our president reads from a teleprompter and "reality shows" aren't even remotely like real life, why would blog comments be spontaneous and genuine? It's actually kind of fun to comment on things you wouldn't normally even think about. A bit like doing those Sudoku puzzles. It's good for the brain.
I've been thinking more about healthcare lately, but that hasn't been so good for the brain. It's depressing! You really can't escape thinking about healthcare these days. Turn on the television and nine times out of ten, you're going to be listening to someone talking about the healthcare crisis. Health insurance seems to be the largest single expense for people I know who own a small business like I do. Even in an industry like mine, where equipment costs are high, health insurance costs trump everything else. The sad thing is that even if the folks in Washington pass some sort of healthcare legislation, it won't help people like me who already have insurance but still struggle to pay for it. It will just help people who had nothing to start with. I'm sure when all is said and done, I'll end up paying even more than I am now. Like Kris Kristofferson told us all a long time ago - "freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose."
