We're not blowing smoke, part II

This article from Staten Island once again illustrates the difficulties in providing medical care in our current legal environment. Most folks in this country see the tort system as a non-issue (how many get excited about asbestos litigation?), and will not unless and until it directly affects them. Pregnant women on Staten Island are now directly affected; one hopes that they, and their Congressional representatives, will now get involved.

Hat tip to Ace of Trump.
