  • Robert G. Martinez "Doctor of Rock" - There is nothing wrong with this album. It's all in your mind.Pink Floyd has always been great "head music". A lot of time had passed by since their high water mark, 1973's Dark Side of the Moon and this album (1994). If it had been released 20 years earlier in 1974, it would have been hailed a masterpiece. I've listened to this album very closely and still found them to be the best purveyors of head music. I can't understand the cynical and disrespectful comments about this album, mostly from folks who weren't even alive when Dark Side came out. Bottom line: If you like Pink Floyd's weird sounds, and surreal soundscapes, you'll love this album. If you're hopping on the latest bandwagon, keep the negativity to yourself and stick to American Idol. Real Pink Floyd fans know "The Division Bell" is really a very good album even without Roger Waters.
  • Kirk Muse - A Powerful book. A must readThis is a powerful book that should be read by everybody in Law Enforcement and the drug policy reform movement.
    I suggest you start with the first five pages of Chapter eight. Then set the book down--if you can. I don't think you will be able to.

    I have read lots of books about drug policy reform. This is the best by far.

    This book shows why the United States is no longer a free country. When the police can a do ram though doors and walls with heavily armored military vehicles. in the middle of the night, because they suspect the occupants are using, growing or selling some "unapproved" herb, we no long have the right to consider the United States a free country.
  • D. Rouse - I was skeptical but it worked for me!I have cystic acne and have done Accutane three times (yes, 3 times) as an adult to get rid of it. Accutane helped but I still get about 1 cyst a month. I'd read that Zeno did not work on cystic acne but decided to give it a try (but kept the receipt, in case it did not work). After 3 months, I have been very impressed with the results. I've used it three times where I could feel an acne cyst beginning (where I have a small painful lump under the skin). I used it morning and evening for three days and the cyst never emerged. I have extremely fair skin so my skin did show some reddening around the treatment area but (a) I expected as much and (b) it was easily covered by a little makeup and (c) it kept the painful cyst from emerging.

    A couple of items to note (since expectations are key):

    (1) It seems like it takes a long time for the device to be ready to use. The instructions say to press the first button (that is a circle with a line in it) and wait for the clock light to turn green. This takes a little while. As near as I can tell, during this time, the tip is heating to the proper temperature. I thought it was broken because it takes mine a few minutes. Eventually, the light does turn on; it just takes longer than I anticipated.

    (2) The treatment time seems like an eternity, even though its only 2 and a half minutes. I suspect that (sad as this is) it is the process of doing nothing for that period of time except holding a device to my face. However, I'm convinced that the entire treatment period is necessary, despite the fact that it always feels like I'm just sitting around doing nothing.

    I also, on rare occasion, get regular small whitehead pimples and this product did not seem to work on those. However, I suspect that the reason for this is that by the time they emerge on me, they are already small whiteheads, so superficial that I just scrape them off the skin surface with my fingernail. I suspect that these are already "too far gone" for the device to work.
  • J. A. Fragoso - Definitely worth the extra dinero.At first, I really didn't see the point of spending upwards of $700 dollars on a stroller when good quality strollers go for half that price. Then after I purchased this stroller for my newborn daughter I saw just how convenient this stroller is living in an apartment. It collapses quite easily, and its versatility coming with both the basinet and the sit-up seat is incredibly useful. Furthermore, when comparing it to the Bugaboo, the UppaBaby comes with most of the accessories already including the canvas covering, 2 mosquito nets and the undercarriage storage. Yes it does have accessories that you can purchase, but with the Bugaboo not only is it more expensive but you would have to purchase these items that already come stock in the UppaBaby. The bassinet seems to be incredibly comfortable as well. I have not physically laid in it, being that I am 6'1 and incredibly muscular, but I can tell by how comfortable, peaceful and downright gorgeous my daughter appears to be when she laying in it. I bought the best mattress I could find for my daughter's crib, and the only place she will sleep without being fussy is her bassinet. In retrospect, I am very happy I gave in and purchased one of the more expensive strollers for my baby girl, and I would gladly recommend the UppaBaby to anyone I know or don't know.

    There is only one criticism I do have. Being that I am from Jersey and a Yankees fan. The UppaBaby headquarters is just outside of Boston. Enough said.

    Have a great day and good luck with your growing family!
