Harvard Prof To Explain HCR In A Comic Book...Huh?

Everybody's having a lot of fun with a Harvard economics professor's announcement that he will write a comic book about health care reform.

We called them comic books.  I guess the politically correct term is "graphic novel."

You can go here (Assoc Press, Feb 9) and read some of the humor/sarcasm.

Everything from "Now even the dummies can understand how good it is" from supporters, to "Now even little kids can see how bad it is" from critics.

Is this what we get from our premier institution of higher learning?
