It could be worse. The market could be falling at Ludicrous Speed.

The Dow futures are in the green. And the markets in England and Germany are doing well right now. I need a big effort from everyone today.

Mrs psu_dad: You need another hobby. This one is making you stupid.
Me: Let's go Dow Jones ... clap-clap ... clap-clap-clap.

Anyone see this?

California launches investigation following stunning admission by Aetna medical director

Here is the opening paragraph:

California's insurance commissioner has launched an investigation into Aetna after learning a former medical director for the insurer admitted under oath he never looked at patients' records when deciding whether to approve or deny care.

Wow. An admission of what I think everyone suspected. But, an admission under oath is a big deal. Let's see if anything comes out of it. I'm not going to hold my breath, though.

And the really great news is that I lost a great medical plan and now have Aetna, thanks to President Pinocchio (bless his heart).

You can probably take comfort in the fact that this is probably a far more common practice than is being reported. Aetna got caught, but I seriously doubt any of the other providers are doing this any differently.
