Carl Sagan, says one of his colleagues at Cornell, “is very often right and always interesting. That is in contrast to most academics, who are always right and not very interesting. ” In his books or off the cuff, on the lecture platform or sitting across from Johnny Carson, Sagan has a distinctive gift for expressing scientific notions vividly and with infectious enthusiasm.

October 19, 1980: The cover of TIME crowns Carl Sagan the “showman of science.” And for good reason – he had a singular way of enchanting people with the cosmos, knew how to capture the essence of science and its transcendent, spiritual quality, and he even received fan mail from Isaac Asimov.

Más moda que lesbiana anarquista escuchando skrillex pelirroja vegetariana con tumblr,que le gusten los superheroes de la Marvel o Dc, que le guste la nutella, anda en skate, se pone mostacho en las fotos, es adicta a starbucks y a las vans y endeuda a los papis con una cámara de mil megapixeles con la cual se fotografía en un espejo.

This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.
On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”
He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.
Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.   
To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous. 
This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.
