Comments: Operation Coffeecup

John,

I took a quick listen to part 1. I'll play the rest later. First thoughts are that it's great. The sound quality is much better that one might expect from an old album.

Also, It's amazing how relevant it is still. When I have time and less child generated noise to contend with, I plan to thoroughly enjoy it all.

Thank you.

Huge thanks for this delightful gem! As someone
whose British cousins routinely warn of horror story after horror story within their National
Health Service, I am keenly aware that if free-
market advocates don't start clearly explaining
their solutions quickly, we will be forced to
accept the inevitable misery that full government
control will unquestionably bring.

I strongly believe President Reagan was, at heart,
a devoted Milton Friedmanite, but he was daily
savaged so badly by the opposition running Congress, and most of the media, that he felt forced to cut back on some of his goals
domestically. His admirers can best show their
fondness abd respect for him by carrying on his
message, and concretely trying to implement the
liberating reforms necessary for a freer, more
dynamic country.

Thanks for posting this.
I sent the link to a friend and client who leads a county medical society.
I consulted with their Alliance several years ago when they were at a crossroads in their history. It was clear then as it is now that their mission was both providing leadership in their community related to healthcare, and, relatedly, working to strengthen the community of physicians and their families. They became energized and within two years were recognized as the top Alliance in the state.
What you post is the sort of thing that Alliances can do.
My friend has already taken this, circulated amongst his staff, and MS leadership, are have begun the discussion about how to act on this model of Alliance activism. They are in particularly looking at how to employ the Coffee Conversations and Pres. Reagan's list in the arena of liability reform.
Thanks for posting this.
