    Hey Ed- would you wanna discuss means-testing for entitlements like social security and Medicare.

    Ah, the good old days, when bands like X were a dime a dozen. Feel sorry for the kids of today.

    X was the best band in the world after The Clash imploded.
    play "more fun in the new world" next!

    I don't know about 'a dime a dozen', but there were a lot of great bands, some referenced in 'I must not think bad thoughts' off of this very same album.
