After a rapid trip to the west coast to interview Simon Cowell I was thrilled to be back with my people on Brian and the Judge. Thanks so much for all of your calls and your birthday wishes. Having landed at 1am and at work at 3:30 I need the enthusiasm to spur me on and you supplied it. Hoped you enjoyed the interview with Selena Robers as she discuseed her book on AROD. It was alaso great to hear from Marc Thiessen and Ed Gillespie from the Bush years.
