Class, grace and wit

Brian has handled his troubles with such gracious class and grace - he is an example to us all. MSNBC needs to give him a prime time spot - enough with the penal colony @ 2300.
His knowledge and experience is legendary and his wit and humor make this national nightmare easier.

tRump town hall decision

I’m old. Retired. Covid and tRump fatigued and looking for people and advertisers to punish. Rewarding tRump was not meant to get us more information - it was pure money. Uninstalling all NBC affiliate apps, podcasts, and writing advertisers.
