today's reason I hate capitalism, or one of my favorite writers may need a $50,000 operation

It's too early to know how things will work out, and it's not my story to tell, at least, not unless the friend says he's cool with me ranting about it in public. But in a civilized country, you wouldn't have to try to figure out how to get a quick fifty grand in order to get an operation that you need. I so wish Canada would conquer us now.

The friend is exploring options, and Minnesota is better about helping people than many states, so all may ultimately be well.
