Wicked Decent guys I do have one personal linguistic peeve. Not trying to be a mean nitpicker, because your show is so great - but it is titled, not entitled when referring to a book title.

Keep up the good work, because the SHOW IS...great.

FYI - smelly dry wall probably came from the gulf coast where we are still finishing up clean up from last summer's hurricanes.

TeachJ, you are right about the titled/entitled thing. I personally don't find it nitpicky, I like to learn about differences in word usage.

Hope the hurricane clean up comes to a close soon.
