Inflated medical bills mask true cost of careOne man’s case illustrates the problem: His medicine to treat Crohn’s disease runs the hospital about $6,300 per dose. But the bill he gets is for $38,000. This is very true of my cancer treatments.

    Responding to the QotD, I’ve read that book. It was moderately amusing soft porn, first person stewardess tales of tail with passengers and fellow crew members.

  2. Speaking of your daily writing — I read in a Strange Horizons interview of you from 2004 (http://www.strangehorizons.com/2004/20040426/lake.shtml), that starting in 2000 you were doing a regimen of a story a week. Recently I did a story for a contest in a week and it was eye-opening what I could do in a week, day job and kids notwithstanding. But: when you were doing a story-a-week, what did that mean? About how long were the stories? And did that mean ‘a complete first draft’ in a week, or ‘a story ready to send to magazines’ in a week? Thanks!
