    With everyone on pins and needles awaiting some sort of official update on Fox, suffice to say your headline required a very rare 7:24 pm underwear change……..next time use a bit of sensitivity in such trying times……

    No political diatribe garbage from Jon today so comments are actually allowed on Jonny boy’s post. Much better Jon, but I’m not optimistic.
