Fla. docs' outreach

There's no question Florida doctors have been working hard on behalf of their side of the initiative battle, as witness this report of a rally in Sebring. However, their outreach to natural allies seems to leave much to be desired. The publication Insurance Journal talked to several Florida independent insurance agents and found that "amazingly, even on election day, none had investigated the details or implications of this amendment to the insurance industry and very few had made up their mind about how to vote." Meanwhile, perhaps stung by criticism, trial lawyer interests are now taking pains to deny that their revenge-initiative Amendment Seven would necessarily crack open hospital peer review records.
