Deep Thought…NHS edition

I’m staying in London in a relative’s home just a couple of blocks down from the Royal Free Hospital.

I wonder if such proximity to the availability of no-questions asked healthcare will achieve the pre-communist softening of the brain so cunningly avoided when the city fathers of my home town, Berkleley CA, managed in the late ’50s early ’60s to block the addition of fluoride to the municipal water supply.
