      Thanks for the feedback, Joe. We do take seriously the feelings and opinions of our audience. It’s unfortunate that politics plays a roll in our lives to the extent that it does. I feel uneasy if I upset the listeners. This particular week and many here lately have been hard to think about anything else. I do apologize though
