      Recently, after not hearing Hot Rats for a year or so, I cued it up. No wonder Hot Rats was received to such acclaim. I was appreciating it like never before! I can’t say why. That started me off into a Zappa listening frenzy that lasted for weeks.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".
