and lurkers. Tansy, that theme was my underlying thought in my rant yesterday. I have had those musings also as of late. Too much emphasis on consumer, not enough emphasis on the human beings.

WS deals with consumers and that is the disconnect. That is another reason why the injection of a business model into a human endeavor will never work in area such as basic education and health care and will be immoral in the case of food and water. I don't care how great capitalism is...you are comparing apples to oranges we you try to make some things into business.

In my lifetime, I have seen hospitals morph from places of caring and healing to businesses. They are in the process of doing the same thing to the education of our children. As a School Nurse-I can see this very clearly, which is why I fight vouchers tooth and nail. I refuse to see education turn into the mess that passes for health care today. Humans are not business ventures.

Happy hunting and watch out for the bears.
