    Everywhere this same curriculum instills in the pupil the myth that increased production will provide a better life. Last night CBC’s Cross Country Checkup discussed the reform of our health care system. There is a sense of desperation in the way in which we are trying to save our current health care system (and education system) but in light of the near collapse of our financial systems we should be careful before prescribing any solutions. Managers removed from risk helped cause the current economic fiasco. This is the sense of sanctuary. Photo: Life_Through_a_Viewfinder.
