  1. Sigh... Terrible audio; can barely hear them; way too much mike noise. The captioning is, shall we say "inadequate".


Please, by all means, leave a message below. I welcome any and all comments. However, language that could not make it to network television will result in your comment being deleted. I don';t like saying it, but prior events have shown me that I need to. Thanks.
