Close to Home Comic – for Your Consideration

closetohome.gifDo you get the daily newspaper? Does the comics section carry Close to Home?

It’s one of my favorites — and I spent quite a bit of time poking around the Close to Home website to see if I could put a copy here on my blog. but no.

It’s worth a look — just to provide you with some food for thought:

“Your HMO has approved your surgery, but…. ” you’ll have to link to the cartoon to see the rest.

I’m curious. What do you think? I’d love to know how others react to this cartoon.

    Trisha;

    I love Close to Home! It has some really funny and biting insights into health care. I’ve always wondered about the background of the author.
