An Insiders View of "Sicko"

Like Bob, I haven't seen MM's newest "documentary" (although, to be fair, I'm not a big movie guy; the last film I saw was the new James Bond flick). But it appears I really don't need to:

"Ask any Cuban who has recently left the island (because they can’t talk freely about this inside of Cuba) about their health care system and they will tell you that it is often a challenge just to get aspirin and they often have to get it on the black market. The run-down, dilapidated and unsanitary conditions in the facilities that the average Cuban must go to for care are a far cry from the hospitals and clinics reserved for high-ranking members of the communist party or the military. There are actually special facilities in Cuba that serve foreigners who can pay in foreign currency."

Read the whole thing (scroll down, since the site doesn't use permalinks).
