• Thanksgiving

    There’s a lot for me to be thankful for, considering my good fortune to have been born in an era and country of great wealth and opportunity and into a family that made it easy for me to take advantage of it. Relative to the vast majority of people who ever lived, I have it pretty good. Likely you do too. We should be thankful … and humble.

    More germane to this blog, I am thankful to have found a community that appreciates evidence and facts. Because of you (collectively), that community is now vastly larger than it ever has been. This value of something like a scientific view of the world, that I presume we share, is not universal, as I’m sure you know. I have the luxury (per the above) to be extremely frustrated by that fact. But, at least I have this blog as a relatively safe haven, and you to share it with. So, thanks for reading and joining the conversation.

    Have a great day tomorrow and don’t forget the Austin Frakt Thanksgiving day diet.


    • Happy Thanksgiving! A privilege to write here.

    • Thanks to you and Aaron and your colleagues for creating an online oasis of sanity for anyone concerned about health care delivery and health care economics. No one has ever spoken harshly to me about being directed to this blog, and some have even been grateful.

      Happy Thanksgiving! (Love the diet, too.)

    • Thank you to you guys. I have learned much and hope to learn more. It has been such a blessing to find somewhere data driven and fact based to read on health care policy.
