you uptodate on national health care I happen to know quite a bit about this because I had lunch recently with Hillary Rodham Clinton although she was probably unaware of this fact because the room also contained several thousand newspaper executives belong ing to the Newspaper Associ ation of America motto Keep ing You Accurately Informe It was one of those mass banquet luncheons where squadrons of waiters come swooping out of the kitchen carrying trays stacked high with plates protected by steel covers which they whisk off at your table to reveal to your astonishment and delight chicken The reason you always get chicken at these affairs is the Federal Interstate Chicken Transport System which was built during the Eisenhower administration to ensure that the nation would still be able to hold banquet luncheons after a nuclear war All major hotels are connected via a vast under ground network of pneumatic tubes to huge chicken factories in Delaware and Arkansas where thou sands of chicken parts per second are fed into the tubes under extremely high pressure These parts sometimes travel thousands of miles before blasting out into hotel kitchens all over the nation where workers frantically convert them into banquet meals to make room for new incoming chicken which arrives constantly There is no way to stop it this is a federal Each year hundreds of kitchen workers are injured by chicken breasts traveling at upward of 400 miles per hour This is yet another rea son why we need to be concerned about health care So I was so eager to hear Mrs Clintons speech before the American Newspaper Association lun cheon It was great She kept the crowd in stitches with a series of hilarious healthcare jokes such as the one about the guy who goes to see the doctor because he keeps finding turtles in his undershorts No I am kidding Mrs Clinton did not tell jokes I have heard funeral speeches with a higher humor content Mrs Clinton is VERY serious about health care She knows TONS of facts about it I can tell shes the kind of person who in sixth grade had her Science Fair project done early and it featured elab orate neatly lettered diagrams and a meticulously executed experiment involving test tubes and petri dishes clearly demonstrating some complex scien tific thing involving enzymes whereas people like me showed up with lastminute projects featuring Dix ie cups and a hastily scribbled cardboard sign with a title like THREE KINDS OF So I tried to pay close attention as Mrs Clinton dis cussed the administrations healthcare plan I would say shes in favor of it Im afraid I cant offer much more detail because healthcare is one of those issues another one is the bond market that my brain refuses to think about PAY ATTENTION Id tell my brain The First Lady is explaining health care But my brain would drift off pursuing its own interests trying to remember the words to the Beach Boys 1963 song Our Car which never gets played on the radio and for good reason Mrs Clinton would be talking about the administrative expenses of Medicare and my brain would be singing Well have the roughest and the toughest initia tion we can Then Mrs Clinton would be talking about the inequities of drug pricing and my brain would be singing And if you wanna be a member well really put you through the grind Its a good thing Im not in charge of national health care I cant understand my own medical bills Last spring my son suffered some injuries requiring medical treatment and ever since Ive been receiving incomprehensible bills from dozens of random medical computers Im pretty sure that Im now paying for medical care given to people injured in the Hindenburg disaster Theres no way to tell because the bills all look like this With reference to the above referenced account your 73 percent deductible differential has not been satisfied with respect to your accrual parameter and therefore you are obligated to remit no make that here are some more random amounts and bear in mind that we would enjoy nothing more than seeing your pale skinny body in This is a true story A while back out of the blue I started receiving threatening letters from a collec tion agency representing a hospital demanding So I sent the agency a check Last week on the SAME DAY I received a a letter from the collection agency returning my check with a note stating that I did not owe the money and b a NEW threatening letter from the same agency demanding Im thinking that the only way out of this might be the Federal Witness Protection Program Of course Im sure medical care will become much simpler and more efficient once its being handled by the federal government motto We Are Not Authorized To Tell You Our Im hoping that Mrs Clinton and the Congress work out some kind of plan soon and Im hoping that it covers routine doctor visits Because I need to see somebody about these turtles Dave Barry is a syndicated columnist for the Miami Jimmy Carter negotiates with North Koreans SEOUL South Korea AP For mer President Carter in North Korea to try to ease nuclear tensions has held out a carrot the possibility of full diplo matic ties with Washington Carter met with North Korean Pres ident Kim II Sung for three hours today at a presidential palace on the outskirts of the North Korea capital of Pyongyang The two men covered a wide range of issues but fears that North Korea is building a nuclear arse nal dominated the talks Another meet ing was scheduled for Friday mom ing Washington has said Carter who is on a private trip was carrying no for mal message from the Clinton admin istration But he is making unofficial overtures to the hardline Communist Today in history Analysis government President Kim II Sung told Carter through an interpreter What is impor tant between us is trust confidence in each The meeting between us is the start ing point for the first confidence in each he said as translated on Cable News Network CNN was the only Western news organization allowed into North Korea to cover Carters visit Upon arriving in Pyongyang on Wednesday Carter held out the possi bility of full diplomatic lies with Wash ington if North Korea permits full inspections of its nuclear projects The ume has come to establish full friendship and understanding open trade exchange of visits and full diplo matic relations between our two coun the former president said at a welcoming banquet But that will not happen until North Korea opens its nuclear facilities to inspections he was cited by CNN as saying North Korea has indicated it wants out of its political and economic isola tion Yet for the past 15 months the Communist state has refused to open its nuclear sites to full inspections The government in Pyongyang insists its nuclear program is peaceful but the secrecy of its nuclear opera lions has heightened suspicions it is trying to build atomic bombs in viola tion of treaty obligations While Carter sought to lessen the chances of conflict on his fourday mission the United Slates proposed a package of sanctions to be brought before the Security Council The package provides for a ban on weapon purchases from North Korea and suspension of development projects But ii does not attempt to halt trade with the Pyongyang government and it contains a 30day grace period South Korea expressed full backing for the proposed sanctions Our views are well reflected and if a resolution is adopted as drafted it would put significant pressure on North Foreign Minister Han Sung soo told a news conference today By
