My Lucky Day, and Health Care

My thoughts on today. I am feeling lucky. Not Las Vegas luck- because said luck is pseudo luck- but more the type of luck that can be best described as sitting down on a computer and loading up Pandora, only to find that the last person on your machine to use Pandora didn't sign out, so you get to listen to 'Flembag's Playlist.' It really is intriguing to know that there are people at Brigham Young University who call themselves "Flembag" and listen to "Country Pop." Who is this Flembag character, and is that his real name? I'll assume yes. But that's not the only reason I am feeling particularly lucky today. The other reason is my Irish heritage! It doesn't actually exist, but I do love corned beef & cabbage, green things, rain, Lucky Charms, potatoes and Catholics. I therefore feel blessed by the Irish, and worthy of their luck. (It turns out this day wasn't really any more lucky then yesterday.)
Onto other topics. By lucubrations I have conceived a plan to fix the Health Care imbroglio. It's a concise plan that goes something like this: Stop Being Unhealthy. Don't eat Twinkies unless Apocalyptic circumstances necessitate, give the French fries back to France, don't drive drunk, and don't get shot. If everyone followed those simple guidelines the health costs of running a major nation- like Mozambique, for example- would fall faster than a man's cholesterol on Lipitor. What little money it would cost to send the fries back to France would be raised by The National Speed Walking Association eager to introduce our nation to the newest fad: Speed Walking.
