And second, because as Dyke comments, "Any plan that relies on the sheep to negotiate with the wolves is doomed to failure." We need to focus instead on building a healthcare system that is truly patient-centered.

Libertarians will tell you the answer is more price transparency. And while that is indeed a good idea, it won't solve the problem: a) because if your kid has sustained a head injury, the idea of them deciding which provider will helicopter them to hospital is fucking Swiftian...

Cardiac surgeon Lester Dyke explains why McAllen, TX became one of the most expensive healthcare markets in the country: "We took a wrong turn when doctors stopped being doctors and became businessmen."

this is a *terrific* and very thorough writeup of github's db architecture. it still pains me that mysql never got their election story straight, but this is probably best in class using open source components.

This report, while terrible, is talking about unaccompanied minors, not minors deliberately separated by the US at the border. Whomever started it, it needs to be stopped, not made worse.

I agree action is necessary. People must act according to their conscience. Personally I try to demonstrate solidarity by speaking out and giving money to people helping those affected (e.g. , ).

Who knows, maybe I’m getting it all wrong on the Christianity stuff. But I’m pretty confident that separating kids from their parents at the border is a disgrace.

I am an atheist now but years of being a choirboy meant I got a lot of Bible. If there’s one thing I learned from Jesus it is the importance of critical thinking. The irony of using Christianity as a moral justification for “just do what you’re told” is staggering.

Why be religious if you’re going to obey the law over what your religion tells you is right? Nobody at Nuremberg got off by saying they were following laws. Slavery was legal. The Bible has plenty of stories of the righteous disobeying shitty laws. h/t

The CD book was 4 years of evenings / weekends. I'm glad I did it. Essential though to avoid busywork, or overworking others as a result of your decisions. I ❤️ "If it isn't extremely productive or extremely pleasurable, don't do it." via
