50. it went fine for me, i usually watch Olbermann but i skipped it. I watched
"The Kite Runner" last night, glad i did.

I really, really detest cable "Opinion shows", they aren't "News" shows and when people figure that out they'll be better off. I get my actual news from the 2 newspapers i get delivered to my house and lbn which imo is great, news from all around the globe.
