    Too bad you weren’t in better company. I’m not sure if I’m glad that you got the last word in or sad that they didnt give the only voice of reason top billing

    Congrats Dr. T! Looks like you finally hit the big time.

    Congratulations, Steve! It’s great to hear the voice of reason coming from a Texan.
