Chickens For Checkups

by
Abby Zimet

Need medical care? Heed the advice of Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sue
Lowden, who has said that Americans don't really need health insurance -
they should barter with their doctors for care. Write her
with your ailment and what you'll trade - say, 50 bushels of barley to
take care of your gout - and Chickens for Checkups will make sure she
gets it. It's the old-timey way!

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
