I must say, the democrats suck just as much as the republicans. Strange to think of all the outrage back in 2000 when Nader said the two groups were basically the same and now the democrats are pretty much proving him correct.

NPR has an interesting story on private healthcare spending accounts. Seems money is missing from thousands of accounts:
Thousands of people are learning that money they squirreled away in health savings accounts is gone. Many thought the money was sitting safely in banks. But now it appears it was stolen.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the individual was hiding in a crawlspace and refused to come out. He was bitten by a police dog then tasered and later died at a hospital.

Tasers need to be banned.
