Common sense medical blogger

Pseudonymous physician "Sydney Smith" makes the common-sense observation that if rising medical costs are driven mainly by an aging population and costly technology, then the likely result of capping insurance premiums is to drive health insurers out of business (or, I might add, out of state). However, not all California legislators agree with her.

I am adding Dr. Smith's MedPundit blog to my blogroll. Other medical blogs I've seen either do not address policy matters or tend to diverge from my point of view when they do.

Anyone have suggestions of other medical blogs I should be reading?

(I discovered MedPundit via two Newmarks who point to a post on the unintended consequences of malpractice suits.)
