No way to live...

There was an article about the Cheney shooting of Whittington in our local paper this morning.
It included the following quote:

...It was almost like he was spending time with me in my living room," said hospital administrator Peter Banko,...Banko said Whittington was in the intensive care unit because his condition warranted it, but he didn't elaborate."

I've been in an ICU. It costs about $2000 per day. ICU beds are a scarce resource. They are not comfortable, if you're in one you're hooked up to more wires, tubes and electronic monitors than an average postdoc work station.

Mr Banko needs to remodel his living room.
