Maryland, particularly Montgomery County, has become a bright spot in the national health-care picture.

    Also, although I truly do wish the man well, it would be best to lose Julius as a frequent caller. Perhaps you could limit taking his calls to once a week and/or cut him off the moment he says something inappropriate (including insults).

    Interestingly, I’d like to lose Trump as our President for much the same reason. I’ve long thought there are some shared personality traits between Trump & Julius.
