Mike's Blog Round Up

Gizmodo: The Library of Congress unveils an archive of every public tweet ever. Sort of.

Fablog: Hand-cuffing marriage equality in Illinois.

Forbes: Ohio hospital just the latest to bilk Medicare for unnecessary cardiac procedures.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day: “As a physician, I can attest that nothing has had a greater negative effect on the delivery of health care than the federal government's intrusion into medicine through Medicare.” (Rep. Tom Price, R-GA, July 30, 2009)
