I love to read books. But even more, I love to talk about books.  Good conversation doesn’t require us to have read the same things. I just want to know what people are reading and why, even if they’re not sure themselves why a particular title drew their attention. The author? An upcoming movie? Awards it’s won? The current political moment?

Pursuant to Michael J. Howcroft MD FRCSC letter to the editor of June 27th, I would like to mention that I recently attended an event in which he was the guest speaker. He shared with us his knowledge and experience of working under the system of socialized medicine in Canada compared to his experience of working in the medical system in the United States. He explained in detail why socialized medicine fails in regard to cost, access and quality. Dr. Howcroft also shared some examples of cases that failed to help patients needing immediate care in order to heal from serious health problems. Socialized medicine doesn't always treat each case with immediate service. People sometimes die before they are seen by a physician because of the time factor. A patient may have to wait months, or a year, to see a specialist. When Dr. Howcroft ended his speech and asked if there were any questions, many of us suggested he should write a booklet, a book, or a letter to the editor. Thank you for publishing his letter.

In 1973 the Quad-City Times became the first newspaper in the world to be produced by computer, thanks in large part to the Harris 1500 VDT now displayed in the Putnam Museum.
