Avg. life expectancy in the U.S. lags that of many, if not most, industrialized nations. As Larry Kudlow might say, this is the most embarrassing story never told. Even more embarrassing is that no one seems to care.

I happen to believe that government would be most effective if its stated priority was to maximize the life expectancy of its citizens, similar to a corporation maximizing profit.
