This is an amazing story being reported this morning .. Andy Kaufman's brother has now stated that his brother is alive.. And even more, there is a woman claiming to be hid daughter! All known information said that Andy Kaufman, the legendary comic, died of lung cancer. The movie MAN NO THE MOON seems to show Kaufman's real battle in the end with the disease.. However, we also know that some have spoken of Kaufman's then obsession that would fake his own death. And now family and purported family are saying he is alive and well.. This is a fascinating story.. If you believe they put a man on the moon..

Sex sells. Even health care. You can sell health care two ways, perhaps. On one hand, you can show young professionals without insurance, struggling to get by, working long hours, trying to make ends meet for their families, and battling to stay healthy--Obamacare comes along and now can aid them in their struggles. Or, on the other hand, you can just remind them that they can have more sex. Apparently that is what Colorado Consumer Health Initiative, along with the ProgressNow Colorado Education, are doing in their 'thank Obamacare' campaign.. they decided to go with a new advertising campaign, aimed at 20 somethings, telling them that when you find out your partner has insurance through the affordable health care act, you can bang him/her. A history of inspiring government propaganda now being replaced with sex..
