Dear Beth Panaccione,

Motorcycle riders and their passengers are much more likely to suffer serious injuries in a crash than car or truck occupants. With distracted driving on the rise, motorcyclists must now be even more vigilant. Browse these motorcycling safety tips.

Focus Should Be On Health Care Safety
We understand that it is difficult for anyone to wrap their head around the issue of errors and health care. Americans have a justifiably high opinion of doctors, nurses and other care providers. The vast majority are dedicated professionals that do tremendous good for society.

But to err is human, and it has become clear that the big business of health and nursing home care results in too many preventable injuries. So read this newsletter not as an indictment of the fine people who work in health care today, but rather a defense of every American’s right to justice and accountability.
