Are you saying that the USA health hystem is better because waiting lists here are shorter because the system is so expensive that only the rich can afford to use it.
I’m saying there are pros and cons to both, while many people oversimplify the situation and look at the Canadian healthcare system as some ideal we should adopt. It’s more complicated than that. As for being so expensive only the rich can use it, as I said before, tons of people show up at the emergency room and stick the taxpayers with treatment anyway.
but not sporting prowess
I totally agree with you on that one, but the US university system seems totally sports crazy—but then again, our whole society is, so they are just keeping step with society, for better or worse. We also pay professional atheletes outrageous sums of money to play games, albeit we expect them to do it very well, but we don’t invest nearly as much in, say, scientists (like an X-prize or Nobel Prize), or other people who will advance society.

This is true, but I’ve often wondered if some of the huge amounts of money generated by collegiate sports, such as football here in Texas, ends up being applied towards the university in general. Does anyone have reliable statistics on this?
