NOT A Pressure Cooker

Again we bite our tongues whenever we feel the urge to debate healthcare reform in these posts. Thank us later. Suffice it for now to say we don't quite understand why even some our most trusted sources are predicting the end of hyperbaric medicine as we know it. When suddenly comes this odd report straight from the chambers of Congress:

Sitting in an easy chair, Mr. Baucus seemed relaxed – chipper even – sipping from a paper cup of “Buffalo Blend” coffee brewed in his office. He smiled easily after nearly four months of such high-pressure negotiations over the health care plan that staff said his conference room, where talks were held, often felt like a hyperbaric oxygen tank.

Surely the Senator's staffers have never enjoyed a nice relaxing dive. Maybe that would get our lawmakers thinking clearly.
