Continuing the blind trust discussion from earlier today ---
Senator Frist is reported as stating that:
he "acted properly" in selling stock in his family's hospital chain. * * * [and that]
his decision last summer to divest in Hospital Corporation of America, co-founded by his father, was meant to eliminate the appearance of a conflict of interest. He said he "had no information about HCA or its performance that was not publicly available."
