Harry-Just when one feels things couldn't get any worse I read the Montreal Gazette and find out things could be a lot worse! I thought you might be interested in the fact the Montreal English paper (and the French-which I can't read) are running a big series on all the Quebec patients fleeing across the border for health care...ie:would you like to wait 6months for radiation therapy after a diagnosis of cancer? One of my current employers CVPH has been front page news off and on since 12/7. It brings home that we may be struggling in the US but it could be worse. I'm taking the 12/20 edition south to show them their front-page splash "Plattsburgh lures Quebecers with mall of medicine." I didn't know if you were interested in news from outside the States but thought I'd let you know-just in case.
