Over lunch today I finished the article about health care in jails and prisons. It made  me very sad.

It also made me angry to note, as pointed out by with the author, that prisoners have a right to health care, but the rest of us do not!

No, it isn't. It's frequently terrible.

Yesterday I read James Marcus' "Blood Relations" (March 11). I didn't want to read it, but I felt I needed to read it.
