I must object to the distasteful trivialisation of hip replacement operations in your recent post Cheap As Hips. Many of my friends are elderly people who fought for your freedom in the war. I think I can speak for both of them when I say that I find you a living, gloating metaphor of all that's wrong with our society. Given the regularity of your postings, I can only assume that you are one more welfare sponger with an axe to grind.
