There's a national shortage of kidneys, and thousands of people die each year waiting for donors.

One possible (though, to some, unpalatable) option would be to make it legal for organ donors to be compensated.

Drew Carey think that's a great idea. He hosts a video blog at (affiliated with the liberterian magazine of the same name). In this post, Carey makes the case for a free market for organs.

(Look!  I got through this whole post without a The Price Is Right for Kidneys joke! Or a Whose Kidney Is It Anyway? joke!)
