That was Robert Bruce's henchman after Bruce had stabbed Comyn in the chapel. The murder was unfortunate but as it turned out it was one of the most important events in Scottish history.

Many people here are used to treating themselves for illnesses and injuries. Even if you do have insurance, there is still a copay and then if your insurance doesn't cover a certain treatment then you have to pay for it out of pocket. (The only time I regularly see a doctor is once a year for a "women's exam".)

did hope and change obama make things better?

a bit old post, to be sure, but Brits are only slightly, in some studies, less sick then Americans....better health, overall, is found in Continent and S. Europe (blue zones in Sardinia and Ikaria for example).

Yes, AMericans are arrogant into thinking that a few less waiting lines=better health.....to be sure, some European states have screwed up health care, others it works well.....all said,the stats not favoring the "yanks"
