Poetry in Motion

Nancy Turnbull, at the Harvard School of Public Health, has broken through the mysteries of health care reform, offering poetry where policy debates and economics have often failed. Frankly, I was hoping things would move in this direction.

Does anyone out there think this would have happened in any other state in America? I doubt it. In other countries, yes, but probably in a different medium. In New Zealand, this would have been sung in Maori. In Italy, portrayed as delicate marble sculpture in the Borghese Gallery. In India, as lapis, coral, and other precious stones inlaid in alabaster. (OK, I'll stop . . . .)

For this and your previous post, thanks for brightening our day, Nancy!

Health care for all
Deserves public discourse.
Consider, the blog.
