I'll definitely keep them in mind when I move up to New Hampster to open my
restaurant in a year or so. (And to put things on topic, there _will_ be a
couples of Coco systems on functional display there, at least a 1 and a 3 --

Let's get real. According to the CBO's report, in the current fiscal
year the U.S. government is gorging on some $2,142 billion of revenues,
consisting of taxes, fees, charges, fines, and other species of
extractions from the people's purses. This sum works out to
approximately $7,500 for every man, woman, and child resident in this
country, or $30,000 for a family of four average persons. Perhaps some
of those people feel they are getting benefits worth at least this much.
