Washington’s congressional delegation has long railed against Medicare reimbursement rates that penalize this state for having an efficient health care system. They shouldn’t squander the opportunity to finally do something about them in the health care legislation before Congress.
UPDATE: We’re holding this editorial and running one about the court ruling on the Kent teacher strike instead.

The controversy gripping France – whether or not to ban the burqa worn by some conservative Muslim women – has nothing to do with couture and everything to do with the tricky dilemma of balancing religious rights in a secular society.
