NOTE: This Page has been down for some time now, perhaps for more than a year. The web host (Primenet) is no longer in business either. I have tried to contact the original author and maintainer of the Bellman Gripes Page but I have been unsuccessful. Since I found the page to be relative, entertaining and somewhat factual, I have decided to keep a local cached copy of the page.
