Walken did host a few weeks back. It was interesting because it was Christopher Walken, but from a pure hosting-skills perspective, Andy is better.

Don't listen to the nay-sayers.
I love Leonard of course, but you are the best guest host (until Christopher Walken makes good on his offer) he has ever had.
I have come to look forward to hearing you over the last couple of weeks.

Thanks, Andy, for the update. I've enjoyed your work but I am one of the people who was beginning to freak out over Lenny's absence.

A company I worked for in Boston, Keyport Life Ins. was a corporate sponsor for a City Year team and Trotter elementary school in Roxbury, MA.
The years I was involved with the program were very rewarding for me personally. I hope the support from the teachers, parents, company employees and City Year really made a positive difference to the students.
I moved from Boston in '96, so I have no idea how the program impacted the children at the Trotter school.
