> Excuse some cross postings. Colleagues, The current issue of N Engl J 
> Med has two thought provoking articles, one on professionalism and one 
> on a move to take healthcare out of the present decision-making system. 
> I thought most of us would like to read this, be aware of this, article 
> in New England Journal that looks at the movement to take direction out 
> of the current system and put it into the hands of consumers. There is 
> a good analysis of implications, and we gain an understanding of why 
> there are those pushing medical saving accounts. While I do not think 
> that was at all the intent of the article, I think we should be informed 
> and thoughtful. I think we all should read this and think about it 
> before the week passes and we have an occasion to express our choice at 
> the ballot box. Just my opinion. Thomas
