    “Caring More for Money or Patients?”

    Is the new plan for psychiatric treatment at UofL Hospital another example of its care for money over people? While public schools continue to get attention in Amurka (because everyone thinks he’s an expert on it), mental health remains a mostly muted discussion and behind dark shadows (and a far worse problem than education). This latest plan by UofL is not helping anyone but itself (what else is new?).
