Wow...have you seen the recent Gallup poll numbers about how Americans view our healthcare?  In general, we are "quite positive" about the quality of the healthcare we personally receive, and yet seemingly much less positive about the quality of care nationally.  Is this a Lake Wobegon Days effect (illusory superiority) situation where every child is above average?  Or do you think there's some other explanation...

(More thoughts on the actual quality of US healthcare here.)
