Not anyone, not mine not my parents not my friends no one. $34 million is just way too much money.

So, what is a life worth? You keep dodging the question. you have established that there is a definitive number that defines a cost at greate rthan the value of life. What is that number? What is the point at which we say 'You know, we could have saved you, but the bill was going to be $xxxx to society, and we have better uses for that money'
