Paul Krugman writes about old-fashioned compassion.  Having canceled my cable television subscription years ago, I missed the following:
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Representative Ron Paul what we should do if a 30-year-old man who chose not to purchase health insurance suddenly found himself in need of six months of intensive care. Mr. Paul replied, “That’s what freedom is all about — taking your own risks.” Mr. Blitzer pressed him again, asking whether “society should just let him die.”  
And the crowd erupted with cheers and shouts of “Yeah!”
