Who is going to help provide good health insurance for children of older parents who are seniors when the kids are 26?
Good question: The hopeful political end to this, and it is all political, is universal coverage. Until that point, hope these children by age 26 have a good job with health coverage.

Health and wellness: why is junk food still so readily available to highschool, middle school, and even primary school kids in the us?
Cheap: It's cheap, has a long shelf-life, and provides money for the school and school district. Plus the junk food manufacturers have the financial, political, and logistical capabilities to "encourage" school districts to carry their stuff in schools. It's a shame though.

Are computer games harmful to a child's development, or do they help train him for a future in computers?
Some are: Many computer games involve killing and maiming and seem to me to teach that violence is O.K. Others, like e.g. Snow boarding, teach dexterity and computer savvy.
