And the trees were all kept equal by hatchet, axe and saw

An interesting story about the state of government-run health care in Sweden and some good stuff in the comments also. This bit stuck out:

His doctor's request was denied because the drug was 33 percent more expensive than the older medicine. Mr. D. offered to pay for the medicine himself but was prevented from doing so. The bureaucrats said it would set a bad precedent and lead to unequal access to medicine.

Right, so instead it will lead to complete lack of access to everyone. Welcome to the perversity of the socialist paradise.
