However, children do have multiple acute illnesses each year, and a substantial number of children, often estimated to be 20 percent or more, are burdened with chronic health disorders, some of them disabling or life threatening. Medical attention, including evidence-based prescription of drugs or biologics, is vital for their well-being.

  • As highlighted in Moffitt (1998), many studies over the last ten years have examined the effects of programs like AFDC, Medicaid, and food stamps on family structure and children’s well-being. These studies have been motivated by a growing concern that public assistance programs con- tributed to the rise in out-of-wedlock childbearing and female headship, two behaviors associated with the incidence of poverty, especially among children. Until very recently, however, little attention has been paid to the effects of the EITC expansions on these behaviors.

  • Particulate matter is arguably the most danger- ous component of automobile exhaust. Particles are small enough to infiltrate nasal, sinus, and bron- chial passages where they can accumulate and cal- cify. Fine PM can penetrate the deepest portions of the lungs and the very smallest particles can be absorbed into the bloodstream. In the nose, throat, and lungs, particulates act as extreme irritants. Exposure to even low levels of PM can cause na- sal congestion, sinusitis, throat irritation, cough- ing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest dis- comfort.

  • The most touching picture I have ever seen was taken around 1887. A young mother is holding a beautiful six-or seven-year-old girl in her arms. Both are dressed in their funeral finery. The little girl is dead, her long blonde ringlet curls falling over her mother's arm. The mother is looking directly into the camera and you cannot bear to look at her heartbroken eyes and you cannot bear to look away. This picture, more than anything I have seen, says grief is not an intellectual exercise. Grief breaks our hearts and hits us like ocean waves.
