LAWYER JOKES GALORE PLUS AN IRREVERENT LOOK AT THE MAJOR PLAYERS IN HEALTH CARE REFORM ARE IN NEW VERSION OF ELECTRONIC BOOK

 OAKLAND, Calif., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- MCR Agency Inc. today announced the release of "Lowdown on Doctors, Lawyers and Politicians." This timely electronic book takes an irreverent look at the major players in health care reform who believe the American public "has what it takes." Version 2.1 adds more lawyer jokes, an expanded chapter on the media and over 200 new quotes.
 Anyone who thinks all politicians are jokes ... until they get elected; who has been kept waiting by doctors; overcharged by lawyers; or believes the media is biased will enjoy this program. It runs on IBM PCs and compatibles.
 Contents: Over 770 quotes, quips, sayings and witticisms from 425 authors with tart tongues and pointed pens pierce professional propaganda and show why jokes about doctors, lawyers and politicians are just symptoms merited by behavior.
 Each of the four subjects is divided into eight sections such as Positive, Negative, Advice and Jokes to facilitate easy retrieval of desired material. Jokes, with more than 270 entries, is the largest section.
 Users can access quotes by subject, author name, subtitle, word or phrase. Material can be viewed on screen, printed, or written to a disk file. Other features include browser, filters and context sensitive help.
 Simple: The program is easy to use. It uses the "Idea Savings Bank" interface. IEEE Software said, "The interfaces are quite intuitive." "I learned its operation in a few minutes," commented Peter McWilliams in his "Personal Computers" column.
