Vic Chesnut

On Christmas Day Vic Chesnut died. Vic was a singer/songwriter from Athens Georgia. At the age of 18 he was paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. He had very little use of his hands, but managed to play guitar. Michael Stipe from R.E.M. was an early fan of his work. Vic went on to record well over a dozen albums. Chesnut's death was a suicide. He was in debt from hospital bills he couldn't pay and faced a lifetime of continued hospital bills he had no way of paying.

And the Republicans still can fight a health plan....(and please don't say that they just oppose the current one, they've made no effort to pass one on their own.)
