I love it when the hosts and their guests chuckle like insiders. Tee Hee, we're laughing at Albany. Isn't this corruption horrible? Ha ha.

And can your guests please find some crutch other than "sort of" to carry them from thought to thought.

How about leaving land undeveloped (and grow food on it when we run out of oil?)
