That bothered me a little that Cheney got a heart transplant. I know other septuagenarians have received organ transplants , but I simply don't buy
the line Cheney wasn't privileged in this case. No way to prove it, but suspect that it is simply true. Back in the mid 1980s I worked at a medical
center were Saudi patients would come and "buy" a kidney for $150,000. That was the cost for the kidney itself as I recall. The cost for the
transplant and so forth was in addition to the fee for the kidney itself. This happened in the western U.S. . I liked the Saudi patients by the
way, but it did bother me knowing they were getting a special favor from us because of their money.
