Anita Renfroe, the YouTube sensa-tion, is definitely a lady who canbe funny and clean at the same time(“Mirth Mother”). I saw Renfroeperform last year, and she washysterical. We need more peoplelike her to keep us laughing.

HealingIdeas?
I appreciated your article highlight-ing some of the issues of health-care reform (Quick Study: “Bill of Health”). It confirmed that overtest-ing and overbilling have led to thedecline of our health-care system.It has many problems, but beforewe mess it up more in the name of reform, Washington needs to figureout what works and then slowlyrepair what’s broken.

Two things drive up health-carecosts: unethical lawsuits andbureaucracy. Let’s reduce thosefirst instead of reducing qualityfor everyone.

I had to put
theSeptember humor issue down timeafter time to wipe tears from myeyes and to relax my throbbing sides.This was the best day brightenerI’ve had in months. And by the way,I think Americans have the bestsense of humor.

s. My entire family hasreceived care for some very compli-cated conditions. The cost to me
 
for all of this? Nothing. I hear abouthow Americans come together intimes of trouble, but the one thingAmericans have not come togetheron is sharing the cost of health care.I was in a gas station in Interna-tional Falls, Minnesota, and therewas a donation jar for an 11-year-oldgirl with stage III cancer and noinsurance. That would never happenin Canada. Do not be afraid of health-care reform.

You’ve got to be kidding: JuneGriffith was nearly killed by an on-coming train (Heroes: “DangerousCrossing”), which obliterated hercar, and she was given a ticket for“inattentive driving”? The poorwoman was lost at night and gotstuck! The police officers shouldapologize to Griffith, refund anyfine, and remove the violationfrom her driving record.

As a wildlife filmmaker who livesin grizzly bear country, I read withgreat interest about how RonLeming Sr. saved his son from abear attack (“Arrow to the Heart”).While a great tragedy was averted,if the pair had carried pepperspray, they could have defendedthemselves—and that bear wouldstill be roaming Wyoming’smajestic backcountry.

WHEN WILL THE RECESSIONEND?… THE READER’S DIGESTVERSION
 
The grizzly was provoked and actedon instinct. This innocent animalwas killed because a father and sonwanted a “trophy” elk. Shame!

All kids should have a role modelas terrific and caring as Roger Barta(“Life Coach”). So many team lead-ers want to win, often at the expenseof their players’ mental and physicalhealth. Learning about Barta’s styleshould be mandatory for all coaches.

My boyfriend is a Marine servingin Afghanistan. When I read that ourtroops are being killed and injuredby stolen American arms, I wasfurious (Outrageous! “Friends LikeThese …”). Why doesn’t the govern-ment do a better job of trackingguns and protecting our troops? Ihope this article provokes peopleto take action.
