someone you've never met! I look forward to more of this! Once the staffers started their "TV network anchor" careers, this next step was inevitable.

That's it in a nutshell. Excellent interview. I'd like to hear that Obama impersonation when it's ready! Thanks much to both of you!

I've always admired his command of the English language. I post a quote of the week on my office door every week, and I've swiped a couple of Richard's bons mots to go along with the ordinary stuff like Socrates, Einstein, etc. Thanks for adding to my collection.

.... been easily expanded over several Spotlight segments. What a interesting history & story! I was disappointed we weren't treated to more impersonations. Thanks for sharing, Richard. Another good one, Sonja.

Did anyone else know that Locrian_Lyric does voice impersonations? Now, I'm tempted to call him back each week for a little snippet of his talent! This was a very entertaining interview. I hope you all enjoy it as well. After listening to the podcast, please chime in the discussion.

Nice to hear your voice Loc. I have enjoyed our conversations, especially on Autism/Aspberger's and IT. Congrads on a fine interview, and nice to "know" you a bit better.
