I also had missed this the first time around, and I'm glad to be hearing it today. Ms. Cash is indeed very thoughtful and open, and I like the rapport between her and Leonard. Good job!

thanks for re-running this. i'd missed it the first time around.

rosanne has an exceptional talent of her own. yes, she grew up in a supportive family, but she's proven her mettle by developing a lasting body of work all her own.

she is also a thoughtful human being.
