Health Care.

I found this story interesting. On one hand, Ritter's doctors were cleared of charges. On the other, we have this:

"Eight other medical personnel and the hospital have settled lawsuits. Ritter's widow and his four children received $14 million from those cases."

I'm guessing that eight other medical personnel and the hospital thought they were innocent of charges as well, but settled because it would have been more expensive to go through trial by jury. So there goes another $14M down the drain.

It's a shame when someone passes away, but it's unfortunate to read about cases like this. It's no mystery why health care in this country costs so much.
