Firestorm

I’ve been away from blogging for a while (and you can see the gaps in my archives; most of those posts are still in the draft section), and apparently in my absence a lot of things have been happening, from the emergence of countless elaborate and well-written blogs to new media projects.

Filmmaker Julie Winokur and photographer Ed Kashi made Firestorm, a documentary that follows LAFD’s Station 65 as they navigate this broken health care system, also known, inexplicably, as “the best health care system in the world” to some people. Now, I know this topic gets people all worked up, but I want to emphasize that I don’t write this blog to be political. That being said, whichever party you belong to, if you cannot see that the health care system in the US is broken and/or are unwilling to do anything about it, then I simply cannot agree with you.

Anyway, here’s the trailer:

One thought on “Firestorm”

  1. I feel so lucky to have found this blog. I live in a very conservative area and am used to being the only one who holds a lot of the beliefs you talk about here. I especially appreciate your appreciation for the police. Much as I support Occupy Wall Street (which I think is the only chance we have of changing the broken system) they bug the crap out of me with the way they talk about police.

    When I talk to civilians sometimes I feel like I’m losing my mind; then I see your blog and no, it’s not me.
