nice job...not don lemon of interrupting dalton bennett in the middle of him telling the horrific story of the children in the hospital that were injured in the railway attack today. why did you interrpt him? to let us know you were putting up a photo of a child being carried off to help. you did not need to stop him from the horrific story he was telling. we can see the photo w/o you telling us. god don, timing...learn a better sense of timing but mostly practice not interrupting your guests so much.
