How did I miss this one?
1.) I missed it because the chatfest in question sounds like on a good day, pops and clicks and on a bad day, the scretching of cats caterwauling.
2.) Because of reason 1, I had not been looking for defense from TV mavens who want attention. (Sub-point: As I recall, Rosie was raised in a Catholic household. At least, this is what infered from her comedic performances.)
3.) Because of reason 2, I only found this today when looking at Mark Shea's little virtual cube of the internet.
So, in conclusion, for whatever it's worth, thank you, Rabbi. It's much appreciated and I hope to return the favor sometime soon.
