A reader writes:

You know, there are many instances of anecdotal evidence that show the UK health system as wonderful, and many that show the UK health system as dreadful.  There are also many instances of anecdotal evidence that show the US health system as wonderful, and many that show the US health system as dreadful.  The point is, one can always find anecdotal evidence for whatever side of an argument one takes.  The question which no one seems interested in tackling in this particular discussion is:  For the average person in the average situation, which health system -- UK or US -- is more consistently better?
