Brexit

Britain voted to exit from the European Union a few months back in a move back to nationalism. The EU is likely to make this very painful for Britain to discourage other countries from doing it in the future.  I hope that the British come to their senses and decide to stay a part of the EU.… read more “Brexit”

Flexner Report – Why Medical Care Costs So Much

This 1910 report basically said too many doctors were being trained. As a result, women were banned from medical schools and about half of medical schools were closed down. Now each doctor could make far more money on average.

Surrogate Parenthood: 1,000 Children

I proposed an idea to Laurel today: We could have 1,000 children that are 100% ours through surrogacy. Basically, the scientific technique is that they harvest her eggs and my sperm and then implant fertilized eggs in a surrogate mother.

Why I Spent $100k To Fight A $10k Small Claims Lawsuit

What follows is my personal perspective on an interesting dispute. Obviously, it is only my opinion of the situation and there are two sides to every story.
