"Frankly" Speaking
"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion.
At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre."
~Frank Zappa

1. Al Gore

Al Gore stated on the congressional Record during the 1985 Capitol PMRC Hearings that; ".....and, frankly, I am a fan of your music", when questioning Zappa during the hearing.

The Zappa Family Trust or Gail herself has donated low six figure money to the Dem's over the years.

America needs a Zappa Fan in the White House!

2. howard Stern
Had a guest host on at lunch that played some interviews Howard had done with Zappa.

He commented that Zappa was like Nostradamus in his ability to predict what is happening right now!

Per what a colleague told me after returning from a lunch time errand.
