Humana advertising is no different in their goals than lawyers, bedding companies and dieticians.

Ah, the VA is just another Washington-as-usual program.
• Another medical warning. Get more medical help if you experience hunger pangs, hic up three times, break a nail, stub a toe or forget a phone number and hate your mirror.
Leave your doctor alone for awhile!
• Read all handouts given to you by television medical sales people, look in another mirror, and if you still see you, have a laugh. The world is still yours.
