    This is really rather amusing, the way in which an editorial from Investor's Business Daily uses the example of Stephen Hawking to show how health care is rationed in the UK. As numerous leftish blog site are pointing out, the entire idea really rather fails. Here's the original statement:

    "People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the U.K., where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless."

    This is of course nonsense. Hawking is not only British and a resident of Britain, he has been treated by the British NHS since his original diagnosis of Lou Gehrig's disease over 40 years ago.
