"You need to feed that little girl more," I told Nurse
Edna,"she's gone from nothing but 'skin-and-bones' , to nothing but
'bones'" I continued, pointing to a 3 foot tall, (or so), skeletal figure
standing on a table directly across the room from us. Nurse Edna made a very
serious face, and told me,indignantly,"First of all, that's not a SHE,
HE's a HIM, and his name is MAX! MAX KNOBNY."

knows Max's other identity!" she revealed.

her that this was the first time that I'd seen Max "in the flesh"'

somewhat evasive at first, but she did reveal that she's a regular listener to
"The Daily Feed" on WRNR-103.1 FM, Annapolis; and "Max" has
been assisting her at "The Center" for quite some time. Apparently,
every patient has gotten to know Max Knobny on a very intimate level.

end of class, Nurse Edna consented to be interviewed for the dailyfeed.com

ratting out Max, is available to download from the website).
Knife My surgery was performed by Dr. Falik on April 10th, 2001. It
went without a hitch. After surgery, Nurse Edna visited me in the hospital to
provide encouragement and answer questions.
"Where's MAX?" was my first important medical

I returned home
on the following day, April 11th, and recovery has been rapid. Except for the
incision, I have very little reminder of that herniated lumbar disk which had
so plagued me, yet ultimately led me to that startling discovery. I will always
be grateful to Dr. Falik, not only for his skill as a surgeon and his wonderful
"bedside manner", but also for his INSISTING that I take a class
taught by a really caring professional, who just happened to be a
"Feed" fan since Ronald Reagan was in the White House.

Minus my cane, I returned to interview Edna, and get some more pictures of her
with her assistant Audrey, and, - of course -, Max, (for evidence). I thanked
them all, and told them that I believe the Center's resources played a vital
role in my, (and many others'), quick recovery.
the website interview reached "Happenings" - the employee newsletter of Doctors

DIS-INFORMATION to help conceal Max's SECRET DOUBLE LIFE ! Anyway, HE'S not
talking. So, wherever the truth may lie... thanks, Max.
