I also get a ton of traffic every time he links to me; I'm glad when it happens because as I have argued, he has a constituency that I think is important to communicate with.

If I was stuck with Romm, I'd be miserable watching him putter around with that sour puss, muttering, "I told them so..." Whereas a happy-go-lucky Morano would shrug his shoulders just once and say, "my bad..." Seriously, Marc, sometimes you have to know when to exercise a little restraint and good taste.
