A review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate discloses that this appeal from its order granting summary judgment for the Secretary of Health and Human Services is without merit. Because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we dispense with oral argument and affirm the judgment below on the reasoning of the district court. Pires v. Bowen, C/A No. 86-841-A (E.D.Va., Jan. 12, 1987).
