The old woman was not only ugly with the ugliness age brings us all but showed signs of formidable ugliness by birth – pickle-jar chin, mainsail ears and a nose like a trigonometry problem. What’s more, she had the deep frown and snit wrinkles that come from a lifetime of bad character. – P.J. O’Rourke, Holidays in Hell

Heart surgery with a guarantee

A Pennsylvania hospital group is offering a 90-day guarantee of workmanship for surgery.
Geisinger Health System is charging a flat fee on elective heart bypass surgery and offering 90 days of follow-up treatment. The hospital said it won’t charge the insurance company if a patient suffers complications or has to come back to the hospital, The New York Times said Thursday.

Since the experiment started in February 2006, patients have been less likely to return to intensive care and spent fewer days in the hospital, Geisinger said.

Isn’t this what we used to call “Secretary of War”?

Analysis: War czar compromise — Part 2
The Bush administration looked for a “war czar.” Instead it got a “junior war coordinator.” But according to American history and to the U.S. Constitution, who should be “war czar” anyway?
The whole concept of a “czar” implies a supreme boss. The term, after all, described the all-powerful, authoritarian emperor of all the Russias for more than 400 years. At times of crisis, especially during wars, over the past century, the call has repeatedly gone up for “czars” to be given sweeping authority over key areas of American war-making, manufacturing or other areas of American life to address some crucial crisis of the moment.
