Not so much stupid as willfully lazy. My bad. It's in my past. I grew up in a culture of "question authority," and got lazy as I got older. That's done now. I guess even in my cynicism, I never expected my govt to sell out something as fundamental as my good health. Because of how I live my life, I'm often caught short when people do things for money that are so disgusting, that to me they would be bad plots for B movies.
