    Maybe this is of zero interest to anyone here, but I was looking into this for a client, and thought I would pass along the info.

    From an ad for The Authors Guild--I have absolutely no connection to this whatsoever, just pasting the text:

    Good stuff. Wish it was available more places. This is something a lot of people could take advantage of.

    Yeah, I'm about to be out of a job. I can COBRA my insurance, but that's such a pain in the ass, and human resources is dragging their feet in getting me the paperwork. But then again, my company has never paid insurance costs for employees. You just get a 10% or so discount for gettting a crummy plan that has no copay and a $1500 a year deductible.

    But god forbid if any of these wacko prep sports parents out there shoot you in the knee-cap, you need to have the overpriced shit.

    And we got the best healthcare system in the world!!

    They probably quoted you higher rates because you're an espn guy!

    Interesting to know, though; I was going to ask here whether anyone had checked this out, or had previous experience with this insurance. Like freelance writers don't have enough problems. :-\
