56. We'd like to live in a place with national health care, like Canada!
You're a lucky "yvr girl" -- we just returned from a trip to Vancouver, BC, Canada and it would be great to be there! It's such a bustling and wonderful place (too much smoking, 'though). We had fun in Gastown and Chinatown -- fascinating history there!

Unfortunately, if we moved there at ages 65 and 70, I don't think that we'd be covered by your excellent health plan. The actor and comedian Martin Short was on with Bill Maher last night and stated that he's glad he's a Canadian, too.

As registered Democrats, we were behind Hillary Clinton's efforts to nationalize health care. Regrettably, there were too many things on the plate at that time and it got short-changed. Too bad for all of us.

What's really ugly is that all the money that we're hemorrhaging to support the war effort in Iraq -- could have gone to subsidizing an American health plan. But not with this ugly little man at the head of our government.

Enjoy your beautiful country. We hope to visit Toronto and Ottawa soon!

In peace,

Radio Lady
