Pissy if they're good title for new magazine pithy did you trusting when we Robert crumb ju don't sure love is? I loved his work when he was when before it was, you know, cool back in the sixties and seventies. Yeah, I used to sneak into the you're supposed to be twenty one or older to go into the underground comic store, but they didn't really pay much attention to that. So read his work.

Mike Lester who works in Florida. There's Steve Kelly, there's. Lisa benson. So there are there's a handful of us. It's a small cutter remained in dark rooms, and undisclosed locations from time to time right secret handshakes and a knock at the door usually, I've never been more down the middle in my left the far left and the far-right of the problem solution, and I have never hated both parties more than I have at this point. For destroying country. One day at a time, but there's not a lot of me either. You know in, in this business if she the far right knuckleheads. In a few far left, knockouts. No, I I'm with you.

I mean, I don't think I wanna do anything I like for three to our segment, and there's no win. If you're moderating a debate because you're supposed to stay out of it, but you're supposed to ask probing questions. I don't know how those two work. Plus how seriously how am I gonna be on stage?
