MONEYBALM

When Newt Gingrich and John Kerry co-author an article, when Billy Beane is involved, when acronyms like VORP and WHIP make it into the New York Times . . . well, then, I feel I should provide a link: "How to Take American Health Care From Worst to First." [See also here.] Health care and baseball both require some human element; but that human element can benefit greatly from statistical analysis that is readily available. Strange that we are willing to apply it more to produce a World Series winner than to save millions of lives and trillions of dollars.
