  • Hospitals ought to be doing less, not more, in the community [Letter]

    I read Anne P. Hahn and Michael Reisch's commentary on hospital reform with sad amusement ("Hospitals too must reform under Obamacare," Nov. 11). Their arguments are all backward. Hospitals actually need to step back from the their invasion into the...

  • When life isn't living

    Most of the mail that crosses my desk deals with politics, policy and other largely impersonal subjects. Occasionally, readers will tell their own deeply personal stories as a way to inform a discussion. Several did just that in response to Steve Lopez'...

    Gay men should be able to donate blood
    The Food and Drug Administration's 1983 blanket ban on blood donation from men who have sex with men (MSM) is outdated, discriminatory and medically unjustifiable. Millions of Americans are denied the opportunity to donate life-saving blood products...

    "Make no mistake: The cost of our healthcare is a threat to our economy. It's an escalating burden on our families and businesses. It's a ticking time bomb for the federal budget. And it is unsustainable for the United States of America." This was spoken...
