Scott of the Antarctic and Republican Opposition to the Comprehensive Health Care

a reprint I like

Scott in winterquarters, October 1911

Robert Falcon Scott, the Antarctic explorer, who with his entire party died of exposure in their race to the South Pole, left a journal in which one reads his observation:

Scott of the Antarctic was not of the generation that could neglect the sick.
