You know what? I'm one of the 50 million Americans who don't have health insurance. You know why? Because I can't afford it. I'm 24 and an independent student and am not covered by my parents anymore. I can barely afford my most basic needs. I have about two or three health items that could use some attention but they would all be considered pre-existing conditions because I had them checked out when I was on my parents plan, and got turned down by the insurance companies for coverage, and even after paying the doctors straight up, the problem is still there. Now ain't that somethin' else. Read this article in the New York Times by President Obama and pass it on. Why We Need Health Care Reform

I just caught this TED video over at code2ave.com and can I just say that I love technology. This is something that I would use, although I would prefer if it were in the form of eyeglasses and a medallion for the projector. The eyeglasses, having a couple different styles and made available in tinted or non and the medallion hopefully with either a piece symbol or the continent of africa for a lens cap. I could also see it being stolen from the MIT kid who invented it and then becoming an app in the app store. AAAAPPPPPPLLLLLLEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
