Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Housing Coalition, Volume 3

I’m sure you recall (if you read my blog anywhere approaching religiously) the problems I’ve had in the past with my property management company: The Housing Coalition.

I’m sure you are also aware that Bob and I are changing the composition of our relationship in the coming months. We have changed a few things about the order of events in the past few weeks. Namely, Bob is moving in a little earlier, we are getting married much earlier than November 1st, and we are having a celebratory party on August 2nd of this year instead of a big shindig on November 1st. As a result of all this change in initial plans, we’ve been on the phone with the Housing Coalition working out getting Bob onto my lease.

Things never seem to go as planned when the Housing Coalition has any involvement. We did have a misunderstanding, but fortunately this time around we were able to come up with a plan that is moderately accommodating for Bob and I but is still within their regular policy.

This morning I received a phone message from the interim director of the Housing Coalition. He first apologized for the misunderstanding, but then he surprised me. He went on to thank me for my most recent letter to the editor.

He’s not the first to mention this, as my pharmacist got a word in to me about it the day after the letter was published. I’d have to say, though, that this is not a race! It is good to know, 7 days later, my letter is still on the minds of the public.

I think he just about made my day!
