I've seen David regale and he's a pretty good regaler.

David is many things, but honestly, I can't even imagine him with a lass on his 
knee and regaling of any sort is a stretch. (David, if I'm wrong, please share 
the pictures/video.)

Thanks

Mo,

Attached are the FOIA requests.

David is not in the office this week. He's in cheery old London town, probably 
with a pint in his hand and a "lass" on his knee. I imagine he's regaling her 
with tales of the sea and statistical analysis.

I don't know if you guys have seen this, but a couple of sources I spoke with 
said this was a fantastic article about the primary issues impacting health 
care costs. I thought it was enlightening. The author also raises a couple of 
questions that we may be able to address using the CMS data.

As far as the CMS FOIA... I have made multiple attempts to get in touch with a 
FOIA officer at CMS. I left a message this afternoon with Melody Hardy. 
Hopefully she'll get back to me. I'm on vacation next week, but I'm going to 
make a couple of phone calls to her and another guy over there to make sure we 
can get the ball rolling.
