  1. Chip Delaney is most delightful man. It' a joy to see and speak to him here at Temple University. Not only his artistry, but also his honesty.

    It's been a privilege.

    Ha ha, he's in cold frigid Chicago right now. Hell on Ice, honey.

  2. Delany. Now Andy if you could get him as a contributor. That would be overness.

  3. Yemani gunman killing someone in the street because he may be gay. You must be mistaken, Islam is a religion of peace.
    I doubt NBC will mention Russia's gay oppression more than twice and then in passing.
