Yes, it was good. I listened to it as well. Not alot of news to me, although, the fact that there will be such a huge shortage of ratio [vets to population] and ratio [vet schools to population] in the future is scary.

Lotsa big bucks are going to be needed to fix that problem! I think they mentioned the year 2040 for the projected shortage, etc.
