SICK

I have not been able to post here lately. The thing is that I went into surgery some days ago. A minor one, if I may say so, but a surgery anyway. I am ok now but I have to say that whenever I have experienced some sort of pain, I think a lot of sick people out there and especially those who are poor: that saddens me and makes mad.

According to official data 50% of the Mexican population does not have health insurance. Mexico ranks well below the OECD average in terms of health spending (barely 6.2% of GDP) and well, anyone who has ever been attended in a hospital (public or private) here in Mexico knows of the awful PR they have there: the personal attention and quality service are a disgrace.

It has been stated (I think it was in Michael Moore´s Sicko) that moral progress in a society can be partially measure by the way in which that society looks after the have-nots. Were that the case, we would have to accept that we are very unfortunate. Damn!
