blessings for Obama

This blog post from a conservative pro-life American mother (who “lost her fear of universal health care” after living for some years in Canada) is one of the most moving, useful, frank, intelligent, honest, uplifting things I have ever read about the strengths of our system, and the paranoias of contemporary American culture. About all she doesn’t say is “God bless President Obama for giving all Americans the opportunity for at least minimal medical coverage.”

I am Professor of English Literature at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC. My work is in the intellectual history of the early-modern period (1500-1700), with a special interest in epistemic issues around the emergence of modern natural science (the "Scientific Revolution"). Philosophically, for me, these issues are subsumed in hermeneutics.
