Reader Eric Fabrizio sends along this story about an elderly British woman who has had to sue her government’s National Health Service for permission to get a hip replacement done in France. The poor dear is in constant pain, yet has been waitlisted for at least a year for the operation in Britain. Keep this in mind whenever you’re tempted to think favorably about socialized medicine.
