Studies show that men interrupt twice as much as women and your guest proved that today.

I admire passion but listening is key.

Love the parade and glad it sounds like it's getting back on track.

So, How many bankers has Eric Schniederman put in jail? How many of them has he forced to resign? I do not condone the alleged misappropriation of Parade funds and other misdeeds but I do have to question Schneiderman's shooting of small fish in a barrel and his velvet glove approach to the crooked banking elites who have destroyed lives.

When can we start cloning Eric Schneiderman?

Ha--I was just about to ask about other parades! But not just the ones run by this group--all parades & similar events should be investigated, or at least reviewed to see if there's cause to investigate them. Is there any move to investigate more widely?
