On occasion, I read the latest column from Steve Forbes just to get a glimpse of what it may have been like if he were elected president (recall way back when, he did run). His ideas are often, shall I say, out there.

His latest, a proposed solution to our health care problems: go overseas to get your surgery ("medical tourism"). Yes, hop a plane and fly to one of many "top-tier" hospitals to get your bone marrow transplant or open-heart surgery -- at a discount! Oh, and while there and recovering, venture out and take in the sights! See, it's win-win.

Forbes says this could "solve" our health care crisis. As bad as GW is, aren't you glad this guy ain't sitting in the White House?
