I'm fine with this, just aslong as it does not expand to daytime ABC Radio and displace me, or Sean, or Michael

Us poor truth perveyors have very little time and exposure as it is.

Il like Leo, but give me a break! He was once considered
as host for some reality trash program.

What's next, John C. Dvorak as blow-by-blow
commentator on BattleBots?

Looks like this could be the end of TechTV. I wonder if they'l bring Martin over with his silly director's getup? This irks me, they dump most of the computer related stuff for how movies are made. :shrug: :shrug:
