Advance, RomneyCare!

(This is the referenced article in the Globe. What do you think: a job for the A.G.? Perhaps, for good measure, a companion lawsuit against the N.R.A. as a criminal conspiracy? Or is a better approach, as proposed by some South Dakota legislators, that every adult should be required to own a gun. - promoted by Bob Neer)
