128. To be honest, in watching the Americans as I am want to do, something seems very wrong.
I hear you about the 'only someone if you've got money' thing too, but it also seems like more and more there's a big hole in America, as it were. Especially financially, but you already know that.

Ah, best of luck. There is precious little else in this world, now.
