Coma

The kid and I watched the TV version of Coma. Spoiler alert: the corrupt administration in a hospital purposely messes with the patients’ anesthesia during surgery and the patients end up in a coma. Then they sell the comatose person piece by piece for transplant parts.
Being the mom that I am, and genetically incapable of letting a moment go without commentary, we talked about the health care issues and the current transplant system.
The response of a 12 year old? “That’s stupid. They should just make everything fair!” I think she needs to head up the next congressional health care reform committee and have special “you sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done” powers.
