    While it is appealing viscerally, we must think logically.  First of all, privacy rules are in place for a reason, and that is a sword with edges on both sides.  I do not want to lower myself (or let my friends lower themselves) to the level of the religious Taliban in this country.  HIPPA is in place to protect privacy. If a health care provider released that information, there are hefty penalties.  The providers have enough problems without risking fines that could go over $50,000.

    It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment. - Ansel Adams
