In his appropriately titled column, 'Why We Must Ration Health Care,' Singer writes,

"The death of a teenager is a greater tragedy than the death of an 85-year-old, and this should be reflected in our priorities."

And -- so the theory goes -- the money and effort would be better directed toward a younger/fitter citizen who can contribute more to society...
