Re That Public Option Thing

My friend therinth Erin from WOTF XXIV is a burn nurse in Real Life. She has a comment today about TV medicine and how far that is from Real Life -- and in particular, how such things may color the health care debate for some people.

My comment on her LJ entry: "Just as I can "enjoy" SF movies where the science-y part derails two minutes into the story, I can enjoy medical and legal shows -- even when I know damned well that it doesn't work that way.

"Having said that, I am so going to link this to Facebook and my LJ. I'm only sorry that my few readers mostly agree with us about the health care options. One does tire preaching to the choir...

"Well said, Erin!"

I cannot think of anything else to say at the moment.
