My name is Anders....a guy, age 50, living in Denmark/Scandinavia. Love the music of The Grateful Dead....and been to 2 of their shows: 1981 , Copenhagen/Denmark & 1990, Berlin/Germany.
Also I,ve been visting America twice...know some fantastic people there.
BUT...what I,m about to ask You: Do You hope America one day gets a National Health Care System - like we have in Europe....OR do You prefer things as they are now ?
Can tell You...nearly all people here in Denmark/Europe love our Nat. Healt Care Systems.
We might pay a little more tax, due to this fact...BUT - in return, nobody NEVER has to worry about "what happens, should one get ill". Can just concentrate 100 per cent on getting better: and we never has to think about payng money to insurance-companies
(insurance against sickness).... Saw Moores Film "Sicko"...think he is right, some of these "insurance-companies" that You have, MIGHT have a bigger interest in earning/saving money, than they have in giving their patient the best (and most costly) treatment ??
Have a nice Day in America. Greetings from Denmark, Anders
Hey Steve-O - will this work for some parking lot conversations?
How about everyones favorite parking lot scene. PS Love this site. Thanks much!!
maybe I'll just take a cue from Patti Smith and launch a topic for Jerry Week. Thanks.
...shall we go, you and I while we can...
Since there was no special place here to remember Jerry's birthday, perhaps there should be a place to remember his passing on August 9 ?
Badger, your topic is here:
KoHo, I'll start yours tomorrow; it's the end of the work day and my brains are not up to framing the complexities properly!
Keep those suggestions coming!

strangest of places, eh?
I would like to see a topic so we can discuss why Bob Weir and Mickey Hart are supporting musicFIRST as well as be able to talk about whether this helps or hurts the music industry (look under Supporting Artists and then the letter M to see Mickey and Bob's listing).
For those not familiar with this issue, opponents claim that it will kill off all small broadcasters and netcasters (even non-profits) in the United States while proponents claim that artists deserve compensation for bringing in revenue to those who play their music.
