Boulder Jury Strikes a Blow Against Evil Insurance Co.s

If you don't think our health care system is completely warped, take you head from between your butt cheeks and read this story from today's Boulder Daily Camera

A local woman was in a car accident, and her insurance company dropped her and refused to cover her injuries because she had neglected to mention a totally unrelated trip to the emergency room that occurred before she was insured, or in the accident. To it's great credit, the jury awarded the woman $37 million in damages, 5 times what she asked for, and about 200 times what it would have cost the company to live up to its obligations.

That we even have these situations is a waste of everyone's resources. We, as a society, need to get out heads from between out butt cheeks.
