SideLines: Health care expenses are a pain in the wallet
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, which went into effect last week. Since I haven’t studied it, I don’t know if it’s a good thing or not, but I do know this.
One day last summer, I thought I’d do something different and make a nice, healthy salad. I was cutting a cucumber when I accidentally slit my left index finger, which began to bleed profusely. Being a card-carrying guy, of course, I didn’t panic; I just sort of growled at it for a minute in my best John Wayne/Rooster Cogburn style.
When that didn’t make the bleeding stop, I rinsed my finger in cold water, wrapped it in a gauze, then raised my arm above my head. (That’s what nurses always tell me to do after I donate blood. They’re the ones who went to school for this kind of thing, so I figured they must know what they’re talking about.)
