Sonny northwest of Frederick, Maryland

Sonny told me the story of a girl in town. Many of the others seated at the bar recognized her plight. “She’s worked for ten years, without insurance,” Sonny told me. And she got sick with a gallbladder problem and, “probably because she couldn’t work on account of her illness,” she was laid-off. She needs a gall bladder removal but the doctor keeps putting her off. “Nobody wants to treat her,” he added. “And she went to see the specialist but he wanted $300 up-front.” Karen, sitting alongside, squirmed in disapproval. “Everyone's giving her the run-around … And there seems to be no way out of her situation.”
