    My family and I could not believe the figures we would see on the bills during my mother's protracted cancer fight.

    Another area of gouging is the ambulance service.

    My 85 y.o. father fell recently near his apartment in Manhattan. The ambulance ride for less than half a mile was $2,700.

    There are moments when the body is as numinous as words, days that are the good flesh continuing. -- Robert Hass
