Exactly 54 years ago, 3 Aug 1968, Portugal's authoritarian prime minister, António de Oliveira Salazar, 79, slipped over in the bath & hit his head.

He seemed to be ok, but then complained of feeling ill.

In hospital he lapsed into a coma. It looked like he was about to die 1/4

My latest for TVO, on Ford’s NOT EXACTLY HONEST statement to the public yesterday, but also more broadly on the state of our health-care system, how it got this bad, and why I think we can’t fix it (so I keep googling how much procedures cost in Buffalo). tvo.org/article/doug-f…
