I'll request the return of the ice floe only if Mr. Page volunteers to use it first.
What a nice guy

Golly Nate, I wish I was just like you.
New age healing,Indian calisthenics,organic produce--you'll probably live forever. Just love your idea of banishing unhealthy people to a solitary death so you can save a buck. What a sweet guy you must be. I wonder if Medicare will pay for your therapy? Because buddy, if you honestly believe that it's OK to kill off sick people-you need it.

No need to wait, Nate. You already qualify for 'old and miserable'.

I can't believe that he even wrote this...what a jerk! Do you have parents? I hope they have someone else to care for them. I am sure this article made them feel "proud". Geez...I hope you get a chance to ride the ice floe and I hope the old people get to give you the first push.

I did not think that there could ever be such a cold hearted, slime of the earth person that existed until I read your article. My awesome mom just died of cancer and medicaire was there to assist her in her time of need. My mother never smoked a day in her life, ate healthy, kept her weight down, and walked 3 to 6 miles every day. How dare you think that because my mother was diagnosed with cancer that she should just be put out on an ice barge somewhere to die. You are a very sick and angry young man who should be fired from your job for writing such an article. I have no respect for you now, nor will I ever have any respect for you from now on whenever you write anything. We strive for progress not perfection, and you sound like you are perfect. One day you will find out when you are diagnosed with a terminal illness that it can happen to anyone. Please do not fill this paper with anymore of your cold and heartless thoughts.
