What does a health care crisis look like?

Just read this article from the front page of yesterday's USA Today to find out. Photos of the waiting lines at the Ben Taub clinics are shown; one patient spent 8.5 hours for an orthopedics appointment. They also mention that Harris County has one of the highest rates of uninsured people in the country (30%), so these HCHD systems are totally overloaded.

Amazing that an institution not too far away (maybe only a state or two) made a national newspaper.
