Sins of omission ... 

chips and fancy sauce

This puts a grim perspective on healthcare as a right ...

More than 886,000 deaths could have been prevented from 1991 to 2000 if African Americans had received the same care as whites, according to an analysis in the December issue of the American Journal of Public Health.

We have been hearing about the raw deal women got in Afghanistan and non-Ba'athists got in Iraq ... even a bit about Sudan. When we're talking about a death toll approaching one million, does it make it any different that the deaths were caused by something that wasn't but could have been done as opposed to shouldn't have been done but was?
