    Sort of O/T Dick Cheney has heart transplant surgery

    Happy Healing to Mr. Dick.. Happy Healing to Mr. Dick.. I wonder if his 'forever free medical care for working 8 short years' for our government paid for his heart transplant or did our Medicare government program pay for it? Either way, ain't 'socialized medical care' grand..!! :biggrin2:
