    LA is. Public schools here are generally better than any of the private ones. But we spend money on it and it is important. We don't do young earth or creationism or any of that other bullshit.

    Also I'd have to say that state medicine is far better than the private practice experiences I had. Like not even close. Our health departments are unbelievable and staffed with friendly knowledgeable people who like to answer questions.

      I'm giving you my experience growing up in New Orleans, which in a lot of ways is not representative of al of Louisiana.  

      And the Krugman suggestion of a universal system like the VA health care system will bother some people.  The reports of the quality of the VA hospitals have been mixed at best, and problems have often been reported in the papers.  See, for example, here  and here and here.  Some people are happy with the VA system, certainly, but there are many people whose only knowledge of the quality of the system comes from those stories in the papers.
