Even I wanted to mock Dennis Kucinich for suing after breaking a tooth on an olive pit in a sandwich eaten at the public trough. But the more I read, the sadder it seemed — what does it say about a country that even its best-insured are treated as if teeth are from another organism? Why does health care not include dental, and why should someone with good coverage have to shell out of pocket? Especially since even the WSJ noted that bacteria from bad teeth can migrate from the mouth to the brain and even cause dementia. Maybe we should all sue for Saint Reagan’s kalamata-cracked molar.
