Will Landmark Health Care Bill Harm Fish?

Eating fish is good for your health. Expanded medical coverage is good for public health. Yet expanding medical coverage harms the health of fish.

Does this mean heath care harms people's health?

Probably not. But Republicans are alleging that Rep. Nancy Pelosi's intense lobbying and favor-swapping in advance of Sunday's historic health care vote may have produced just such a George Carlin-esque mobius strip of logic (the ponytailed standup coined the witticism “You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose.”)
