    I saw this story on the news tonight and loved it, would love to see the show, however our country is in serious crisis and you are not reporting important news.
    Man-made global warming has been exposed as a hoax, the President is about to sign a treaty that will effectively end our sovereignty. Dont you think your fellow Americans have a right to be informed about what the entire world is buzzing about? Climategate.

    Very inspiring, I feel this man is similar to Tyler Perry (whom I respect grately) who is trying to make all of us realize we should try to get along because we’re all human beings.
