'Fat's what happened with a
drug called Makena. The story
of its price rise and sttbse-
quent fall says a lot about
why health care costs are rising
and how they might be curbed.
Makena, a synthetic hor-

munosunl &ay. Itspekd ces r,
17P, was approved by the Food
and Drug Administration in the

3003, opno shitd.ue study
at the National Institutes of

hugely important discovery
because preemies can suffer
lifetime consequences. Doctors

any manufacturer ordered it
from pharmacies that make up
individual doses. The pharma-

rSeeing the rising demand, K-
~V Pharmaceuticals of St. Louis

the FDA for approval to make
and market 17P, and~the FDA
agreed in February, skipping
the usual rigorous testing pro-
cess because of the previous
approval, the NIH study and
a law that allows accelerated
approval for drugs needed to .
treat critical conditions. K-V
got seven years to selfr~e drug

pleased to have a stable com-
mercial source.
That is, until K-V announced
the price: A 20-week course
of treatment, previously $300,
would cost $30,000, putting the
drug beyond the reach of many
women, driving up insurance
costs and adding a potential $4
bil on to the nation's escalating
health care bill. It was the latest
story of drugs.with astound-
ing prices. When a sole sup-

unique restilts, the sky is the

In an era when economic and
international crises erupt daily,
demanding knowledge and care-
ful analysis, Trunip's flagrant
appropriation of the political
climate for further self- aggran-
dizemnent is breathtakingly
cymical. On the' other hand, he's
perfect to reflect the childish
display of ineptitude seen in
Washington D.C. these days.
And then there's the basic
question of why any normal,
sane human being would want
to be president. Trump's arro-
gant answer: "I will do the best
job." In truth, he is creating
jobs he sent "investigators" to
Hawaii to search for Obama's
birth certificate (which Hawaii
put online). Not surprisingly,- .
the investigators report they
have to stay a bit longei:.
.What Trump's dramatic,
implausible rise to near the
top of t~he celebrity ladder on
the road to the 2012 election
really says is that the field is not
settled. Once serious candidates
start declaring, the Trump bal-
loon will deflate faster than a
news cycle. -
Here's a flat-out prediction.
When we inaugurate a president
on January 20, 2013, the raised -
hand taking the oath of office
on the Capitol steps will not
belong to Donald Tr~ump.
Trump will still be on
Celebrity Alley pushing his
name and persona to promote
yet another loony-tunes venture
that mainly profits Trump. I,
among many, won't care.

aScripps Howard columnist
Ann McFeatters has covered
the White House and national
politics since 1986.

like what Bill Cosby said
about the possibility that
Donald Trump, he of the
weirdly sculpted hair and
Preposterous views, might
run for president: "I don't care."
But the fact that new polling
of likely Republican primary
voters finds the self-promoter
tied with former Arkansas gov-
ernor Mike Huckabee (17 per"
cent each) just behind former
Massachusetts governor Mitt
Romney (21 percent) on their
wish list for the 2012 GOP nomi~
nation deserves some~scrutiny.
It is tempting to say they're
all nuts. But the more likely
rationale for anyone to say "I
want Trump to be president of
the country" is a huge amount
of disgust and frustration with
current leaders in Washington.
And there's the natural ten-
dency of Republicans to lust
after business people, such as
Romney, even over-the-top real
estate moguls, such as Trump,
whose corporations file for
bankruptcy, who routinely d s-
card spouses (Trump's on his
third marriage) and who have
no clue about serious national
Trump's insistence that he
doubts that President Obama
was born in the United States
is proof positive he is not to b'e
taken seriously. The canard that
the president was not borni in
America has been debunked so
decisively that Trump can only
be called a liar who's trying to
seduce the fringe element of the
Tea Partiers.
-("Birthers" are paranoid
delusionals and conspiracy nuts
who have no respect for truth
in striving desperately to find
excuses to hate the president.

Ann McFeatters
The state of Hawaii vouches for
Obama's birth and newspapers
at the time duly recorded it
Trump's claim that Obama's
step grandmother said she was
present at Obama's birth in
Kenya has been thoroughly
rejected. She allegedly said that
to a translator on the telephone
before she corrected herself to
say Obama was born in Hawaii.
This is truly one of the stupidest
debates in U.S. history.)
No one has ever accused
the bombastic Trump of being
thoughtful. His foreign policy
views are ridiculous, designed
to appeal to know-nothings. .
He wants to shut U.S. borders
He does not want the United '
States involved in any way in
the Middle East. He says South
Korea does not help offset the
cost of keeping 28,500 U.S.
military personnel stationed
there. (Politifact says that is not
true; South Korea pays `the U.S.
hundreds of millions of dollars
to defray the cost of keeping the
peace on the Korean peninsula.) .
Trump, who popularized the
nasty "you're fired" put-down,
says he won't say whether he's
running for president or not '
because if he decides to run,
NBC would have to cancel
his re o nality TV sho ad that
wouldn't be "'fair" to the net-
wor -

t must have been a huge
relief when the fist poten-
tate decided that rather
than grabbing whatever
Ihe pleased from his sub-
jects their homes, their money,
their crop's he would institute
a tax. Think how humane it
seemed: The government gets
one-fifth. You keep four-fifths.
Nobody gets hurt. That was
progress in its day. You can look
it up in Genesis 47:24.
A few dozen centuries went
by. Despots weren't as abso-
lute as they pnce were, but the
taxman still cometh. Opulent
palaces and Faberg6 eggs don't
grow on trees.
Then along came "~We the
People," the subversive idea
that government starts with
us and works for us. We earn
the money. We decide how
much we give to the common
good and what it pays for. It's
worth noting that the original
Tea Party, while not wild about
taxes, was more concerned
about being represented.

With the new system came
new issues: over how much
money we should contribute
and where it should be spent. I
like bridges, you like bomber s.
I'm loaded, you're scrounging
for quarters. For 224 years
we've been wrestling with
taxing and spending. Could I
propose that we continue this
debate by disregarding the
Does any person anchored
in the real world believe there
should be no taxes? Does any-
body who believes in liberty
want every dollar taken? The
honest argument is in the mid-
dle whether a top, marginal
income-tax rate of 35 is too high
or too low. Whether corpora-
tions are paying their fair share.
Whether all those receipts we
collect and forms we fill out
this time of year are necessary
or whether a flat tax would be
The next 100,000 questions
involve where that money
should be spent. If you are

American, the agreement back
when we wrote "W~e the People"
was that that would be the
work of our representatives.
That's another one you can look
up: Article 1, Section 8 of the
To get elected, representa- ~
tives these days find that they
have to pledge not to raise taxes
(check out this Monitor special
report on why that is). Taxes
have, in effect, become toxic,
Maybe they should be. Maybe
there's plenty of money being
collected to pay for government
activities. If that's the case, then
something's gotta give with
the federal budget: bombers or
bridges? School lunches or bio-
fuel subsidies?
These are tough questions
to hammer out, so tough that
they haven't been hammered
out. Instead, our representatives
have borrowed to close the gap.
That lets them keep the pledge
and not cut, see?

were not giving Him the
proper honor He deserved-
As we look at the
introduction to the book
of Malachi (the last Old
Testament book in the
English Bible), we see
several things the Israelites

God. They were not ~treatung
Him like a son would treat
his.father, nor.were they
respecting God like a ser-
vant would his master (1:6).
In fact they were defiling
the table of the Lord and
despising the sacrifices
they had to make to the
Lord (1:7). The Lord even
says that they would not
treat their earthly governor
the way they were treating
Him (1:8).
God said that He was
"not pleased" with their
sacrifices because they
were not honoring His
name (1:10). They were
offering something they
had "taken by robbery"
(1:13). They were offering
less than the best to God.
They were offering "what
[was] lame or sick" (1:13)
or that which was a "blem-
ished animal" (1:14).
God would rather some-
one "shut the gates" than
for their attitude to be
improper. The people were
saying "How tiresome it
is." (1:13) for us to go anid
worship God. '
Have we, in our country,
gotten to that point in our
worship to God? Do we
really honor God when we
go to worship Him?
Is our attitude toward
going to worship that of
drudgery or can we say
with the Psalmist, "I was
glad when they said unto
me, Let us go into the
house of the Lord"' (Psalm
122:1). Do we count one
day in the "courts" of the
Lord better than 1000 days

desires of the Lord? Have
we spent time studying
what He wants us to do in
our worship or do we do
whatever we think will be
pleasing to Him?
Would God say to us,
"I wquld rather you not
worship Me than to do
it improperly or with the
wrong attitude?" What a
terrible thing for God to
say to any of us!
Doing whatever we want
and displaying an improper
attitude in our worship is
worship which does not
honor God.

do not believe in hell, in 10 out of
these 11 times, the word occurs
in the New Testament, it comes
from the lips of Jesus, only once
by any other (James in James

times the word "gehenna"' (hell)
is used, it is spoken of by the
loving, gentle, kind, Lord Jesus
Christ who came to save people
from hell. Twice Jesus used it
in His Sermon on the Mount
(Matthew 5:29-30).
Modern theology would do
away with the fact of a literal
hell. It is a clever trick of Satan,
to take away the fear of God and
the fear of hell from the hearts of
men. We are told "don't preach

caricatures of an angry God".

Hell is a dreadful fact. I wish
there were no eternal hell, but
to do so I must do away with the

The Senate's $71.8 bil-
lion appropriations bill (SB

$66.5 billion House version,
would cut nearly $4 billion
in state spending.

!"These are not easy
calls," Haridopolos said.
"Just given the gap between

the House and Senate in
this particular .area of the
budget, you'll see some of
these programs gain a little
bit more funding."

Haridopolos denied he
was acting unilaterally by
deciding that the Senate

Critics say the repeal

said Haridopolos, who's

Haridppolos said he

he ruled it failed. That's
because it needed a t~wo-

measure was vetoed last
year by former Gov. Charlie
Crist, but it was the first bill
to reach the new governor
this year. Education fund-
ing is also expected to get a
cut of more than $400 mil-
lion, about 6 percent less
than current spending.
Republicans are trying
to exert more control over
the one branch they don't
rule -- the judicial. They've
introduced a raft of mea-
sures to drastically alter
the state's judiciary, in part
by splitting the Supreme
Court in two, creating one
court that oversees crimi-
nal matters and the other
civil, and requiring legisla-
tive approval for all rules
of court. Some of those
proposed changes would
require voter approval.
Other issues that have
frustrated legislators for
years such as Medicaid,
prison privatization and
resolving both the proper-
ty insurance and personal
injury protection (PIP) cri-
ses are still in the works.

Republicans argue it will

people that's now consum-
ing about a third of the
state budget. Reductions in

Although little was heard
from Republican candi-
dates on the abortion issue
last fall, there are at least
18 measures that would
restrict abortions filed in
the Legislature and their
sponsors are optimistic
they will be passed. They
rammed through in the
final hours of last year's
session a controversial
measure that would have
required women seeking
a first-trimester abortion
to get an ultrasound and
view the picture or have
it described to them. Crist
also vetoed that measure.
But: this time around,

those issues have the back-
ing for ~the most part of the
more conservative Scott.
Lawmakers are also
looking at finding savings
in the unemployment lines.
With one in nearly every
eight Florida worker job-
less, the Legislature wants
to cut state unemployment
compensation benefits
from 26 weeks to 20.
The Legislature also
aims to weaken public
employee unions by end-
ing their ability to collect
dues through automatic
paycheck deductions.
Republicans also want
individual union members
to prdvide written permis-
sion before their dues
money could be used for
political contributions.
Another measure would
strip unions of their col-
lective bargaining rights if
they fall below a certain

Florida's Legislature head-
ed into the second half of
its 2011 session this week
pushing an aggressive con-
servativesagenda that critics
call harsh but Republican
leaders are confident. will
resonate with voters next
Unions, teachers, stu-
dents, state workers, law-
yers, the courts, Medicaid
recipients and women
seeking an abortion are
among those in the GOP
bulls-eye along with nearly
any mandate that comes
from Washington. Florida
legislators are trying to
cut about $4 billion from
the state's current budget
of $70 billion before their
scheduled May 6 adjourn-
'W~e make cuts because
the alternative is unaccept-
able," said Senate President
Mike Haridopolos, R-
Merritt Island. "Raising
taxes would destroy an
already fragile economy.
It's where the cuts seem
to be biggest that troubles
in the Legislature and with
Republican Rick Scott as
governor, theyr have virtu-
ally no say in Florida gov-
"'The poor and middle
class are worse off today
than they were before ses-
sion started and will be
even worse off after this
budget happens," said
Rep. Ron Saunders, the
House Democratic leader.
'"There's only more bad
stuff coming."
Republicans, however,
claim some cuts like
eliminating the agency
created to monitor urban
sprawl across Florida
- were long overdue and
frees up money for other
stressed areas.
"Imagine if we didn't do
that," Sen. Don Gaetz, R-
Niceville, said. "We'd have
to thin the soup in the
school cafeteria and the
nursing home even more."
Both chambers passed
their respective budget bills
Thursday,, but significant
differences remain to be
settled in conference com-
mittee work that begins
next week.
Scott has already signed
one divisive bill into law
that will create merit pay

Wat ch

f or at

you exactly what
the 2011 version of
the Florida Gators
I ihIcudtlfootball team will
look like as they make
.the Orange and Blue
debut at noon today in
I wish I could convey
how stunning the
offensive attack looks
under new coordinator

that head coach Will
Muschamp has brought
Fact is, I can't speak
on anything due to the
media and fan lockout
imposed on spring
practice by the new
coach. If it transfers into
a 10-win season, mnany
won't be tjoo upseit. .z
What I ciix do''s po~iiit
to a few arbi~s of interest ~
heading into today's
- There wasn't a more
scrutinized figure in
Florida football last
season than John
Brantley. The follow up
to Tim Tebow had a
hard time translatting
into Urban Meyer's
system and it showed.
Brantley should feel
much more comfortable
in the pro-style offense
the Gators are expected
to run, but he'll have
true freshman Jeff
Driskel nipping on his
heels. Driskel probably
won't do enough to
overseat Brantley this
season, but things could
get interesting with a
positive debut.
Chris Rainey Last
year, Rainey was making
the transition to wide
receiver in the spring.
This year, he's back
at his natural position
and he's been getting
a lot of work. He's
Florida's only healthy
scholarship running back
participating in spring
practice with a slew of
injuries and Jeff Demps
running track. If anyone
is to look like they're
in midseason form, it
should be Rainey.
Defensive backs -
With Janoris Jenkins out
due to offseason surgery,
the Florida secondary is
lacking a lot of punch.
Jenkins, will again be one
of the better backs in the
SEC, but the question is
who will step up behind
him? Jeremy Brown and
Cody Riggs are thought
to be the frontrunners
for the spot, but how
will each of them fit
into Muschamnp's new
system. It won't look
similar to what Florida
is use to running with
much more 3-4, so it'll
be interesting to see how
they match up as the
transition continues.

that it could compete with
the top of the district despite
a 6-4 loss to Fleming Island
High at home Friday.
The Tigers fell behind 1-
O in the second inning off a
Lee Howard shot to the wall

- David Ragan feels like
he is taking the right steps
to get up to par with .his
Roush genway teammates.
NOW he has his first
career NASCAR Sprint Cup
Ragan earned his first
pole in 153 career races
with a lap of 189.820 mph
Friday at Texas Motor
Speedway. He easily took
the top spotfr-om teammate
Carl Edwards (188.521
mph), who will start on the
frOnt row with him.
'8W Were sO ClOse. That

is cool for David though,"
Edwards said. "If we had
to be second to anyone in
qualifying David would be
the guy. Those guys have
been working really hard."
It is the third time in the
last four races that Ragan is
starting in the top six. The
only race in that stretch he
didn't start that high was
last wee~k at Martiqsville,
where he started 14th and
then went on to a season-
best eighth-place finish.
"I think the three guys
that are on our team are
the three best; drivers in
the garage. It puts pres-
sure on us to go and run
fast," Ragan said. "It's good

to have come out of the
box with some good runs,
some good qualifying runs,.
a couple of good races. So
we've just got to continue
to get better and concen-
trate week to week."
Roush drivers Matt
Kenseth (fourth) and Greg
Biffle (ninth) are also start-
ing in the top 10.
Edlwards had already
won a pole earlier Friday
for the Nationwide Series
race at the 1'hmile, high-.
banked track.

Those three counties
saw about 120 high school
seniors accept major-col-
lege Acholarships this
past signing day. And
Golden has made it clear:
He intends to get back to
Miami's roots and ensure
many the region's best high
school players going for-
ward wind up playing for
the Hurricanes.
"We've got to get used
to doing everything right
when no one's looking,"
quarterback Stephen
Morris said. "So even if
uhre' r ous nds of popl
here or no one out here, I'm
going out there the same
way and I expect everyone
on this team to go out there
the same way. That's how
University of Miami foot-
ball players will carry them-
SGolden also asked stu-
dents and faculty to come to
a practice on campus about
two weeks ago. When.that
was interrupted by rain,
Golden invited them all
back for Miami's next work-
out, something that wasn't
in the original plans.
Miami football is a prod-
uct, and Golden is turning
into its chief salesmail.
"We need our fans," quar-
terback Jacory Harris said.
This all doesn't stop with
spring practices. A week
ago, after that scrimmage in
Palm Beach County, about
half the team got together
late on a Saturday night
to take part in a walk to
raise money for, and aware-
ness of, cancer research.
The following day, the other
half the team went to an
event geared toward help-
ing Miami's hungry.
"We're role models in~ this
community,' Harris said.
By the time spring ball
ends, there's a chance that
more than 20,000 people
might have shown up to
see the Hurricanes play
the Hurricanes. While
that number doesn't come
remotely close to what
some teams lure for their
spring game, it represents
much higher-than-usual
exposure for Miami's off-
season workouts.
Miami is also inviting
area high school coaches s
to their practices, even the
closed ones, to give them a
feel of what Golden and his
staff will aim to do with the
Hurricanes. Those coaches
are understandably urged.

about becoming a star, the

by Woods winning the '97

shots at age 21. Told they
were 7, 8 and 9 years old at
the time, Woods bowed his

"A little older now, I
guess," he said. "It's the
next generation. It's good
to see these guys out here
playing with that much
enthusiasm and that much
zest for the game. And
that's good."
But it also could present
quite a challenge.
McIlroy was at 10-under
134, the lowest 36-hole
score at the Masters since

2005. He has tied for third
in the last two majors,
although this will be his
first time in the fmal group
on the weekend at one of
golf's biggest event.

cheers ~after each of his
five birdies as he made a
familiar run up the leader-

The question is whether
the two youngsters ahead
of him really cared.
Rory McIlroy, the 21-
year-old from Northern
Ireland, had already fin-
ished off his solid round
of 3-under- 69 Friday at the
Masters. That gave him a
two-shot lead over Jason
Day, .a 23-year-old from
Australia, who showed off
some of his fearless play
with a 64.
It's the first time McIlroy
has held the lead in a major
going into the weekend.
And now he's got Woods
only three shots behind.

"If you start thinking
about anyone else here, if
you let your mind wander
at all, it can cost you a

tournament if he's up
there," he said. "But I'in
two shots ahead and I'm in
a better position."
Besides, the greater
mystery might be Woods.
He has teased before in

Bay Rays slugger Manny
Ramirez told Major League
Baseball on Friday that he
is retiring after being noti-
fied of an issue that arose
under MLB's drug policy.
The commissioner's
office announced Ramirez's
decision in a statement,
but did not.say whether he
tested positive for a banned
substance. Ramirez previ-
ously served a 50-game
suspension for violating
the drug policy while he
was with the Los Angeles
"Major League Baseball
recently notified Manny
Ramirez of an issue under
Major League Baseball's
Joint Drug Prevrention and
Treatment Program," the
statement said.
"Rather than continue
with the process under
the Program, Ramirez has

informed MLB that he is
retiring as an active player.
If Ramirez seeks reinstate-
ment in the future, the
process under the Drug
Program will be complet-
ed." -
MLB said it would have
no furthei- comment. A
second positive test under
the program results in a
100-game suspension, and
a third test results in a life-
time ban.
'"The Tampa Bay Rays
were informed today by
the Commissioner's Office
that Manny Ramirez has
decided to retire after
being informed of an issue
under the Drug Program,"
the Rays said in a state-
ment. "We are obviouslyy
surprised and disappointed
by this news. We will have
no further comment on this
matter, and our fans and
Organization will carry on."
The 38-year-old out-
fielder-designated hitter
left the team earlier this

week to attend to what the
Rays called a family matter.
Manager Joe Maddon said
on Thursday that he expect-
ed Ramirez to be available
for Friday night's game at
the Chicago White Sox.
The 12-time All-Star
agreed to a $2 million,
one-year contract with the
defending AL~ East champi-
ons in the offseason, hop-
ing to re-establish himself
as one of the game's feared
hitters. .
Ramirez struggled with
. injuries but still hit .298
with nine homers and 42
RBIs in 90 games for the
Dodgers and White Sox last
season. He's a career .312
hitter with 555 home runs
in 18-plus seasons, includ-
ing some of his best with
the Cleveland Indians and
Boston Red Sox.
It was after signing with
the Dodgers, though, .that
his reputation was sullied.
The erratic Ramirez per-
formed well on the field

and became a fan favorite,
with "M/annywood" signs
popping up around town,
and wound up signing a $45
million, two-year contract to
remain with the Dodgers.
But in May 2009, he was
suspended for testing posi-
tive for human chorionic
gonadotropin, a banned
female fertility drug that
is often used to help mask
steroid use.
According to a report in
the New York Times later
that summer, Ramirez also
tested positive for perfor-
mance-enhancing substanc-
es during Major League
Baseball's anonymous sur-
vey testing in 2003. Ramirez
was a member of the Red
Sox during that time.
"I'm shockedd" said
Colorado's Jason Giambi,
who has acknowledged tak<-
ing steroids during his own
career. "He was phenom_
enal, one of the best right-
handed hitters I've ever
