Rolling Stone: Obama and the Road Ahead

Favorite part (of many):

"I’ve got a different theory. I believe that when middle-class families are doing well – they’ve got money in their pockets, they’re getting decent wages, they’ve got some health care security – then we all do better. Because those are customers who are buying goods and services, so businesses do better. It goes back to what Henry Ford understood when he decided to pay higher wages to his workers: that meant those workers on the assembly line making those Model T’s could end up buying those cars. That’s how we grew a middle class. So more than anything, our task over the next four weeks is just to lay bare just what these economic choices are. The American people are going to understand which choice is better for them and what is going to be better for the country as a whole."

Harvard Cancer Expert: Steve Jobs Probably Doomed Himself With Alternative Medicine

This shit drives me absolutely insane, for two reasons.

1) Medical and research professionals: just to be clear, you have NO BUSINESS commenting on the health - physical, mental or otherwise - of a person whom you have never met, let alone treated. Keep your opinions to yourself.

2) Journalists and news corporations who publish and proliferate these stories: you should be ashamed of yourselves. This is the worst kind of tabloid journalism - it is hurtful, it is speculative, and it accomplishes absolutely no good.

Be human beings. Let the ill, dead and dying recuperate and/or rest in peace. Jesus.
