Matt Davies is just plain funny! We have written back and so-on and he is natural and a laff riot!
Conrad is also very entertaining.
Jeff MacNelly was droll, but I caught him chuckling once. Bill Sanders is a smart aleck that alot of people do not like, but we agreed philosophically, so had a good time anyway.
Dick Locher is a decent human being…a great guy. DL is a conservative, but old school. More like the Everett Dirksen’s of the past than the Fascist neocon nihilists of today.

“Fascist neocon nihilists of today.”

If there was ever an accurate moniker thy name be “Kranky”. Thank God (yes, THAT God) for us all.
