  1. This was two years ago. I’m not interested in something that happened two years ago. Even when they try to make it look like some big earth shattering end of the world news. I mean don’t get me wrong, I love Al and hope and pray he stays well and with us for a long time. But please don’t tell me something I have known about for two years.
