Need To Know ... and Not

I came across useful information yesterday from reading my friend Lynne Braden's blog ( where she mentioned that in the event you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, that Social Security will fast track that person's application for early benefits. 

Additionally, we have all heard horror stories about some prescription costs - $30,000/year, month/etc.  Big Pharma has a program called "Compassionate Care" and presumably under certain circumstances, they will provide the necessary drug gratis

The best reason not to go is this:  a column reader remarked, "What if you have to go to the bathroom and when you come out, the toilet paper is not stuck in your shoe?"  Disregard the visual and laugh - you know you want to ...
