Zoinks! don't even remind me about giving birth in the American health system! 10 years ago yesterday, and I'm still trying to forget it. I am glad, though, that because I had a caesarean, they didn't kick me out of the hospital later that day. But they didn't feed me either! And when the bill came -- it was like half my yearly salary! I was glad that the State of Wisc. picked up the tab -- or I'd still be washing dishes at SMDC.

What, there isn't an employee discount?

This was a fine presentation. I am thankful to the organizations involved in bringing it for doing so. The macaroon (sp?) appetizers alone were worth being there, let alone a very informative film about (imagine this) how backwards America is.

hey, glad to hear you enjoyed it! there's talk of putting together another screening and i hope it happens. i loved it and want to see it again!
