to be

> The test, performed this morning, showed a 90% blockage of an artery.  The

> He's resting comfortably in the hospital (Scottsdale Memorial/Osborn Room
> 322-A) overnight, and will be home tomorrow afternoon.   Hopefully the

> The surgeon has approved his "gig" this Saturday night, and even plans to
> attend!
