JUST POSTED ON TAP ONLINE: GENERAL HOSPITAL. Remember the SEC's investigation into Bill Frist's conveniently-timed sale of stock from his family's hospital chain, HCA?

Maggie Mahar, author of the new book Money-Driven Medicine, tells the story of the Frist family empire and contemplates the larger saga of for-profit hospitals in America -- a history marked by cycles of boom, bust, and scandal. Take a look.
