Q. Whenever I go to the doctor and she takes my blood pressure it is a little high. Then, at the end of the office visit, she takes my pressure again and it’s normal. Do you know what causes this?

The film is directed...

“Pump Boys and Dinettes,” written by a six-member performance group with the same name as the musical, premiered on Broadway in 1982. The playwrights-lyricists-composers were Jim Wann...
