Hah, Frank Zappa would disagree, home boy! In the "Does Humor Belong in Music?" video, he clearly states (prophetically!), holding up a cigarette and coffee cup, that "these are FOOD." My own mother, having drunk as many as 8 cups of black java a day while raising me and my less-troublesome siblings, has suffered from arhythmia/rapid heart-rate since her late 40s. Hopefully I haven't inherited it, but thankfully me first case o' kidney stones in '87 taught me to drink more water and keep myself to two cups in the morning - and only the occasional cappuccino in the afternoon/evening. And I quit caffeinated soft drinks - and cigarettes! - over ten years ago. If you want to know how I killed that last nasty habit, ask off-list. Drug? Yes. But then we're getting to be more scientific in classifications in this regard. Hopefully in the future we'll be arguing about whether or not something is a "mood/mind/physiology altering substance" I suppose. :) Steve Goodman EarthLight Productions * http://www.earthlight.net/Other - Quasi-daily Cartoon http://www.earthlight.net/HiddenTrack - Cartoons via Medialine!
