The best of Frank Bruni.

The problems in primary care.

• Stan Collender on reconciliation.

Vermonters are very healthy.

• Mike Huckabee is a useful reminder that people can be both genial and crazy.

I am about as far from agreement with Mike Huckabee as it is possible to get, but he is not crazy. He is religious, and has strong beliefs. And you really shouldn't equate the two.

I am, for the record, pretty much an atheist but I don't think religious = crazy.

Ezra, how much of the crisis in healthcare spending is related to malpractice insurance rates/torts? The last time I looked, which was a few years ago, it seemed that those made up a relatively small portion of the rising costs and that areas where they've enacted tort reform (Texas) had not seen large reductions in malpractice rates.

And pj_camp, I think suggesting that millions of people be relocated from their homes is a pretty crazy idea, religiously based or not.

Pls also check Bruni's retrospective of countless restaurant visits with his "guests"! It's hillarious (well,ok, 75% of it s, at the end he starts repeating himself).
