I began writing Hungarian Spectrum more than three years ago, on June 30, 2007. Today's post is number 1,000. So, it's time to celebrate.
During this time we received 6,155 comments, most of which were valuable contributions to the topics discussed. I thank everybody, readers and commentators alike, for their support. After a rocky beginning when very few people happened upon Hungarian Spectrum the readership has grown enormously. I especially appreciate the high level of the discussions and the civilized manner in which these discussions are conducted.
So, I'm taking the day off, but you may want to read something that I found very interesting. In the last two days we heard about the personal experiences of Andrea Mezei in Hungarian hospitals. Here we have an opportunity to read a "scientific" assessment of Hungary's health care situation. One of the many Hungarian think tanks, Political Capital, now has an English language website, RiskandForecast.com. It's worth taking a look at their postings from time to time, especially their latest study called "How Medicine May Break the Bank." Good reading!
