    To the On Point Crew,
         This truly is the big time! Not that you weren’t already big time in my book!  I listen nightly and look forward to the discussions of all things political, economical, creative and beyond.  I am educated, enlightened, depressed, thrilled, saddened, and thankful that you all are there to give us our daily dose of what is our world! Radiohead knows a good thing when they hear it!
