Well-educated professional, medically-trained military brat. Comparative theology scholar and socially moderate but fiscally conservative Republican. Womanist, profoundly underwhelmed by NOW and their monolithic flavor of "Feminism." My takehome message: the price of healthcare is inextricably linked to the price of oil. We need to drill domestically and become energy-independent if we want to ensure the strength of our healthcare industry (disposable sterile plastics, pharmaceutical production, shipping).
