Wow, so to recap Mo's looking for a "rise" out of David and Jeff's
suggested that David's a hell of a regaler, but not when it comes to the
ladies.

 

You guys are off the reservation.

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.
