Who is going to help provide good health insurance for children of older parents who are seniors when the kids are 26?

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.

Watch for this to be a big issue in the 2012 campaign. ...Read more

Bullying happens in school, the work place, home, kids etc.. Is there a mental health diagnosis for why people bully others?

Nonspecific: Bullying can be a final common pathway of behavior for a wide variety of reasons. There is no specific psychiatric diagnosis that matches bullying. Certainly things in such a person's history -- like being mistreated or abused at home -- may be a factor. But it's not an excuse, and bullying must be stopped.

Spaghetti with red sauce is ok, unless the sauce is too oily. A hamburger without mayo; with steamed veggies is ok. ...Read more
