Here's a health

We've spent a little time over the last few months in the hands of doctors and nurses. Theirs is an enormous industry, sucking up much of America's money. But hey, when you need them, you need them.

As it turns out, there's a blog-like health news outfit in town called the Lund Report, which until this morning we confess we haven't seen before. It's quite an active site, and it's got all sorts of articles on it about health care, with an Oregon focus. For example, our friend Marc Franklin contributed a piece yesterday, in which he provides a nice overview of the challenges the state faces in trying to get decent medical care to the entire population without also going into bankruptcy. Elsewhere, we learn that OHSU is bragging about a net worth of $183 million. Go by aerial tram!

Anyway, there's plenty more where that came from. We'll be keeping an eye on that site, now that we've noticed it's there.

Good luck. My wife caught double pneumonia being at the hospital too much.
