No Blanche, You Didn’t Get Taller

It should come as no surprise that those who have a lot of cash to give are also those who have the most at stake in decisions made by the federal government. That’s why politicians get so much money from special interests.

Which is why it is no surprise that a list suddenly appeared showing all the special interest companies that donated money – staggering amounts –  to the Clinton Foundation. Bill Gates gave her $26,000,000. Coca Cola gave between $5 and $10 million. Pfizer, Procter and Gamble, Boeing, Hewlett Packard all gave her between $1 and $5 million.

Now here’s the kicker: At least 181 companies, individuals, and foreign governments that have given to the Clinton Foundation also lobbied the State Department when Hillary Clinton ran the place. As the article stated, ‘It’s not illegal, but scandalous.’ That’s for sure.

We wonder how she stood in front of that picket fence and said she understands the little folks. Ya know, if she would tell the truth and say who she really is, then maybe people would believe her. The list we quoted from has gzillions of dollars in donations to the Clintons. Can you say slimy?

The city of Baltimore seems to be a mirror of what is going on in the United States. Yet another black man mysteriously died while in police custody. There is no doubt and statistics will prove that black men make up the majority of men in prison. They are far from angels. Given that, the system is broken.

We were around and remember the race riots in the late sixties. The riots in Baltimore remind us of those times. Frustration, deaf ears, never-ending promises of change that never materializes and an ‘old white boys club’ have created what is happening in that city. The United States is lucky these riots are not spreading as they did in the sixties when city after city succumbed to race riots.

The answer? Not simple. Both cultures – white policemen and black youth – have to be willing to say there’s a problem in their camp and vow to make things better. The likes of Al Sharpton wading into this mess will only stir the pot. Obama is certainly not the one to bring the two sides together. A weak leader is weak on all fronts – internationally and nationally.

In the meantime, there’s a curfew for a week from nightfall to daybreak; schools are closed; the Baltimore Orioles played a game today in an empty stadium due to the curfew and danger getting there; the looting is unprecedented as is the destruction. It’s just pathetic all around.

People are complaining about the parking fees at the new hospital. Get a grip. Parking is expensive in most hospitals. It’s called sticker shock. Pay it and move along.

Why aren’t those same people complaining about the city meters that don’t show how much money is left? Someone could have paid for two hours and spent only one hour of their time. Our meters don’t show the remaining time and you wind up paying twice for the same time. That’s disgusting.

The earthquake in Nepal is heartbreaking.
There was little if any infrastructure to begin with and now there is simply nothing left. The airport has one runway, Canada has minimal diplomatic ties and many, many people are stranded there. If you are planning to give relief money, beware of where you are giving. Not every website is on the up and up and scam artists come out of the word work for this kind of disaster.

In case you were thinking of going to the loo on a flight, think again.
To save space on planes, airlines are shrinking the loos by 8 inches. So if your knees hit the sink getting up from the terlit, it’s not because you grew by a few inches.

Truthfully, the airlines are pigs. Many are also planning on adding an extra 14 seats per plane. Traveling has become a huge pain and unpleasant experience and a necessary evil to get go on vacation. Fech.

We’ll talk…

Get Your Tickets Here

We are not sure how many times we have said this, but it seems to be falling on deaf ears. Someone should find about 10,000 chairs, set them up a nice distance from the Big Owe and let people watch as it gets blown to smithereens. Of course there would have to be a lottery for tickets as it would generate a commotion the city has not seen for decades. Perhaps since it was built in 1967.

Instead, those who spend OPM – other people’s money – have decided that they are either taking the roof off and leaving the stadium open to the elements or renovating it to the tune of $220 million. That amount however does not include the cost of a new roof.

If they leave it open to the elements it will cost hundreds of millions of dollars each year to fix it after the winter.

Can we talk? Is there not one person with common sense in the entire government? We cannot figure out why in the world our tax dollars are continuously funding something that is hardly used, never was and never is going to work properly and is, to put it bluntly, an eyesore. Hey, wait a minute, we have an idea. Instead of the students marching and causing havoc over austerity which they can’t spell, let alone describe, let them protest over this colossal waste of money. We’re in and we’ll even wear the red square.

In case you missed it this morning, it was snowing. We ‘put the coat’ and left the house bundled up as though it were early March. In case you don’t get ‘put the coat’ it means put the coat on and goes with ‘comes a set’ which is when you buy two or more of something. Both of those terms are pretty well direct translation from Yiddish. Same with ‘put a plastic’ which means put a plastic bonnet on your head. Ya never know what you’ll be learning from Blanche.

There was a picture posted on one of the news feeds of Obama looking mighty thin. How thin you ask? So thin that his ears looked bigger if that is possible. But that’s not the real news. What we found unbelievable were the comments below the picture – close to 500 of them. We’ll give you one salient, juicy one: Enough with the speculation. Just let me know when the … checks out so I can break into my Happy Dance. Compared to some of the others, that was  tame.

Just one week ago, Bernard Drainville, who was running for leadership of the separatist party in Quebec said this about the front runner PK Peladeau: What the PQ needs now is a battle-ready leader, not a political greenhorn who has the nasty habit of tripping up. Ouch.

He went on to say if people think some kind of saviour “will come down from the sky” and save the independence movement without reforming it they are wrong. “I think that’s a mirage.

Zut alors, yesterday Drainville dropped out of the race and said he was now backing PKP, which sent virtual shock waves throughout Quebec. This dude PKP is akin to an overripe tomato waiting to explode. He needs someone talking into his ear at all times to make sure he doesn’t say something that will cause his party to implode even further. All we have to do is sit back, watch the show and wait for him to keep spouting gems. Oh yes, his new hairdo is awful. Can someone please send him a brush.

Good Shabbos
We’ll talk…

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

A 54-year-old man carrying a suspicious package scaled a White House fence Sunday night, but was quickly apprehended. He became ‘compliant’ once he saw the dogs ready to engage with him. Can we talk?

Why isn’t that fence electrified? People who live in normal, albeit large houses not only have electrified fences, but guards who actually see what’s going on. One thing we can tell you…Michelle better keep pumping up those arm muscles because by the looks of things, one day someone is actually going to get into the White House and she may be the only line of defense.

Wait! Blanche we just figured something out. Now we know why she always wears sleeveless dresses. To show all the would-be robbers that she’s pumped up. How could we have missed that.

Hillary Clinton just started her campaign and already we need the barf bag. After putting forth her nomination, she was suddenly very tight with the ‘little folk’. Spare us.

She spent much of her New Hampshire trip railing against America’s ‘1 per cent’ richest, but as soon as no one was looking she took the priciest seat home she could find without chartering a private plane – first class on a regular flight. Guess that’s her idea of slumming.

Remember when Sony’s emails were hacked? Guess who indexed them? Wikileaks. And guess what is now popping up? If you give a $1million gift to an ivy league university your kid gets a tour of the place, a private meeting with the school president and of course, admission.

Turns out that some dude who worked at Sony gave such a donation and all of his emails are now out there for all to see. And who says money can’t talk?

The student ‘protests’ against austerity in Montreal are slowly coming to a close.
The latest losers are now camped outside a CEGEP in St. Laurent. How stupid are these so called students? So stupid that they didn’t postpone their sleeping in tents on the front lawn until the weather cleared. It’s very cold for April, raining and gross outside. Geniuses – wait until the weather gets better to sleep outside. And of course we could not help but notice that there are no loos anywhere in site. Blanche, don’t even think about it. Those people have air between their ears.

Here’s are some very interesting tidbits of information. Which countries possess the world’s most powerful passports? You’ll never guess number one – Sweden. The United States ranks fifth while Canada ranks seventh. The last one on the list? Afghanistan. What a surprise.

If you’re planning to move to Beverly Hills, you may want to rethink your move. Guess how much you will be fined if you water your lawn? $1,000. Come to think of it, to lifestyles of the rich and famous, $1,000 is pocket change. The bigger picture is that California is having some serious issues with a drought that people are just not taking seriously. Where’s Al Gore when you need him? Most likely watering his lawn.

We’ll talk…

It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Gyrocopter!

The secret service and those protecting the prez and white house have bungled things again. This time, a mailman decided that instead of just delivering his mail like a normal person, he boarded a small personal aircraft called a “gyrocopter” and flew into restricted airspace over Washington landing on the West Lawn of the Capitol building.

Why you ask? Because he wanted to personally deliver a letter to every member of Congress urging them to reform campaign finance laws. Can we talk?

First of all how did he manage to evade the no fly zone over the white house? Second of all, did he think he would actually leave the white house lawn and get to deliver those letters? If we were the president, we would be sleeping avec a baseball bat beside our bed. The dudes protecting him are definitely asleep at the wheel.

Well, she’s certainly trying to live like the simple folk. Hillary Clinton finished her stint in Iowa and hopped on a regular commercial flight with no first class and – perish the thought – shlepping her own luggage. Can you imagine? One thing is for sure. She made the news big time.

Remember the dude Jian Ghomeshi? He was the host of the CBC’s top, top show, Q. A few months ago he was let go due to serious allegations of violent, non-consensual intimate acts. That’s putting it very mildly. It was more like he terrorized any woman who worked for him.

Today, a report was released on an inquiry done on the CBC and what they did when they heard about Ghomeshi’s behavior. The report stated that he “created an intimidating, humiliating, hostile and offensive work environment.”

What did the CBC do when women would report this behavior? Guess? Right. Nothing.

An independent investigator found that CBC failed to provide its staff a workplace “free from disrespectful and abusive behaviour. The response from the CBC? First they apologized. Then they said the report was ‘troubling’. And finally, Heather Conway, executive vice-president of English Services said, “I’m confident we can and will do better.”

Is that so? How about saying that we were as much to blame as he was? How about saying that because he was viewed as a superstar, he got away with murder. Their reaction to the report was limp, wilting and wanting and they deserve to be fined big time for their inexcusable treatment of those women when they knew very well what was going on. Shame on them.

There is no doubt that every single Montreal Canadiens fan is breathing a sigh of relief tonight. PK Subban, one of their best players and for sure their most outspoken one, has not be suspended for slashing one of his opponents last night. Even though it seems the other guy has what is called a micro-fracture, he continued playing even after falling on the ice.

Subban on the other hand got a game misconduct and was tossed out of the game for two periods. Although the Canadiens should not take stupid penalties, they must come out aggressive if they are to win over the blowhard Ottawa Senators.

And speaking of senators (good segue, eh?), Mike Duffy’s trial is still moving along at a snail’s pace. Today it was revealed that some of his senate expenses – read what you and I pay for – consisted of a personal trainer. Nice, eh?

Wouldn’t you love to be able to play with opm – other people’s money? Whenever you felt like it, you would go to your little money tree in the backyard and simply take a few dollars. What could hurt?

Here’s what could hurt: The money does not belong to you. Just because you became a senator, an appointed not elected position, does not mean that you automatically get the keys to bank. He may not be totally in the wrong on this case. That is for the judge to decide. What does stink to high heaven is what exactly does the senate do and accomplish over the year?

Good Shabbos,
We’ll talk…

Bill Who?

So Hillary finally committed. Truthfully, we liked her video even though it most likely not true. She’s pretending to understand the ‘little people’ out there who live week to week. She never had to live week to week a week in her life. She’s from the entitled ones, never having to shop for something that comes two in a package.

She has a shot at the presidency unless someone suddenly appears of left field, say next April, which would still be almost 8 months to the election. It a possibility although right now no one is looming on the horizon.

And then of course there’s Bill. If she wins will he be called the First Man? We don’t think so. How about the First husband? Or maybe the First Bill. We think it will be just plain Bill. How’s this: Madam President and Bill. Doesn’t really have a ring to it. Madam President and Mr. Bill. That could work. Really Blanche, is that all you have to worry about?

As we once said, there has to be a happy medium between free range and helicopter parents.
Nothing in the extreme is good. The free range parents living in Maryland had their children, ages 10 and 6, taken into custody after people found them walking alone in the street, ostensibly coming home from the park. In another report, it was stated that the children were found in a parking garage with someone ‘unsavory’ loitering nearby.

We believe the former, park version of the story. Given that, what we cannot fathom is why these parents are pitting their children against the system. It’s obvious that what they are doing is illegal where they live. So either give it up or move to, say Vermont or Alaska where most likely no one will bother them. The parents need parenting.

Joe-boy, who lives in the deep south was shootin up an armadillo. That’s an animal that looks like a cross between a gopher and rat and has a very hard outer shell. Guess he wanted some roadkill for supper. Well Blanche, after he shot and in fact killed the armadillo, the bullet then bounced off the animal, hit a fence, traveled through the back door of the mother-in-law’s mobile home and the recliner in which she was sitting, striking her in the back.

Mercifully his mother-in-law will be ok and he had a fine dinner. Fech.

Looks like there are cracks in the separatist party here in la Belle Province. The parti québécois has asked the Couillard government to recognize the right for students to strike, and thereby set rules governing student demonstrations and votes that could help limit violence or vandalism.

Their erstwhile leadership candidate, PKP, begs to differ. He said it was up to students to control their democratic associations, and that the state should not impose rules on them. Let them talk amongst themselves and while they’re at it we hope they all implode.

While the Mike Duffy/senate trial slowly moves along, the conservative party is ignoring the entire thing as though it doesn’t exist.
It’s business as usual, gearing up for a fall election and doing what they must to garner support all over the country. We’re waiting for Duffy’s bombshell to drop. Ya think he’s bluffing?

Over the long weekend about ten days ago, millions of pounds’ worth of jewels, gold and cash were stolen in a raid of safety deposit boxes.
Many of the owners of the high-value deposit boxes had no insurance on items worth several thousands of pounds. Plus they won’t say what was in those boxes. This is pretty nasty. If ya can’t store valuable in a safety deposit box without fear of being robbed may we suggest a pocket sewn into your mattress.

We’ll talk…

Is There a Nurse in the House?

Margaret Atwood is a prolific and very successful author. No one can take that away from her. Given that, has anyone see a picture of her lately? She looks like she buys her clothes from a second-hand store in Woodstock, leftovers from the festival in 1969. Her hair looks like she just took her finger out of an electrical socket. So why in the world would she remark on how un-fashionable Kate Middleton is compared to Princess Diana?

There was such a backlash to her comments that she ‘kind of’ retracted them. Can we talk? What’s her business how Kate dresses? And how in the world can she even dream of commenting when she looks the way she does? Doesn’t it sound like she’s bored out of her mind? If you see her around, perhaps give her a couple suggestions: stick to writing and buy a mirror.

In a couple of weeks, the super hospital is set to open. One can only imagine the logistics of moving an entire sick population from one place to another. That however, seems to be turning out to be the least of managements problems. You know that buzzer you use to call the nurse when you need help? They don’t work in the new hospital.

Here’s a prediction, not even with a crystal ball: All hell is going to break loose when that place opens. If no one checked to see that a simple buzzer was working, then you can just imagine what else is not working. Remember – do not get sick in the next couple of months. Hold off until they iron out the kinks. Or if you must sick, make sure your car heads for the Jewish General. Or, in the worst case scenario, find someone to pay to take care of you.

The students who disrupted classes today at the University of Quebec in Montreal need a nice lesson taught to them. They hooted in the hallways, hit their fellow students sitting in classes with umbrellas and other things that can really hurt and disregarded an injunction not to protest.

Those students have absolutely zero regard for any authority. That is called a sense of entitlement. Where are their parents? How were they brought up?

They are also cowards as they are covering their faces completely. What are they afraid of? People will recognize them? We went through this before. If they really believed in what they were doing, they would rampage through the halls with their faces uncovered so everyone could see who they are.

The police say they may assault charges. Here’s a memo: if they lay charges then prosecute right away. Not like they did the last time, waiting two years to go to court and then dismissing everything. Don’t you wonder where princess pauline is? She must be so proud.

Looks like Obama has more trouble with his secret service dudes. Russian hackers got into the State Department computer system penetrating sensitive parts of the White House computer system. The White House of course said the breach only affected an unclassified system. That is called wishful thinking.

The bottom line of this story? White House officials said they no longer put very sensitive information into an email leaving it to sit in a server waiting for a russian drinking vodka in his underwear to hack in. Really? We’ve been saying this for about five years. If you want to keep something private, never, ever put it into an email. Pick up the phone.

The Boston marathon bomber Tsarnaev was found guilty today on all charges. What they will do with him is still up in the air. Frankly, we would send him on a one way trip to Mars and not spend a dime putting him up in jail forever. He should not get the death penalty because that’s what he wants. To become a martyr. We do not envy that jury one bit.

Enjoy the second days of Passover even though it’s going to snow…again.

Good Shabbos and Good Yom Tov
We’ll talk…

One Year Ago Today…

At sundown on Thursday night of this week, the second days of Passover begin. As such, Blanche will make her appearance today and tomorrow.

Not everyone who reads Blanche is from Quebec. Ergo when we post something about ASSE, they kind of snicker  and do not pronounce it as we do, if you get the drift. The acronym stands for Association pour une solidarite syndicale etudiante which loosely translated means Association for student union solidarity.

Asse claims to represent 80,000 students here in Quebec. We have our doubts about that number but hey, no one is doing a head count.

This past weekend they ousted their entire executive – poof! Seems those student leaders wanted to wait to strike in the fall with the unions while many others want to go out now and most likely lose their entire school year.

Here’s our advice: Call princess pauline because she was marching with them in their last hurrah, complete with the red square pinned proudly on her clothing. It was in fact, those student demonstrations in 2012 brought down the previous Liberal giving  power to  the princess and her missives. Alas, she has deserted both her party and the students. Is there no loyalty?

And speaking of the princess, tonight marks a year since her very quick and shall we say less than elegant departure from politics. Can we talk? That night she looked like a deer in the headlights on a dark road in Verrrmont. The Liberal Party won the election in a stunning defeat of the princess and her missives. Our nails have yet to recover from that election night.

Watch out for rising prices in almonds, oranges tomatoes and other food coming out of California due to a severe drought.

Using the metaphor of a bank account to describe the state’s groundwater supply: Deposits need to be made in good times so that the water can be withdrawn in hard times. That was not done. And now we are all going to pay for that.

Wait Blanche, that sounds like what’s happening here in Quebec. Zut alors, dat’s the austerity march. Free tuition, free medical care, free housing, free cars and ‘someone else’ will pay. What? Put money aside ‘in case’? What a silly idea.

Dudes, we don’t want to break it to you, but you the marchers are the ones who are going to be left holding the veritable bag if you don’t smarten up.

The Chicago Cubs play baseball in Wrigley field which is undergoing some serious renovations.
Sounds reasonable. Yesterday was opening day and there were, oh, say about 40,000 or so fans in the stadium. Trouble was, only 2 bathrooms were working in the entire place. Yes Blanche, you read that right. Two bathrooms were working. Don’t even try to picture what happened. Just remember that quebec is not the only place that has construction idiots.

Today is the first day of the long-awaited Duffy trial.
In a nutshell: It is alleged that Duffy illegally claimed Senate expenses to which he wasn’t entitled, the RCMP believes Duffy wrongly paid his friend Gerald Donohue $65,000 for little or no apparent work.

Who’s Who In the Zoo of former Harper advisors that will be called to testify for the Crown:
Nigel Wright, Harper’s former chief of staff, David van Hemmen, Wright’s former executive assistant and Benjamin Perrin, who acted as the prime minister’s lawyer.

Other assorted and sundry men and women currently working in the Prime Minister’s office may also be called. If nothing else, this trial will just be fun to watch.

We’ll talk…

The Mother of All Marches

Let’s just say that the ‘almost deal’ that Obama made with Iran today is not worth the paper it’s written on.

Aside from the fact that Iran already went back on some earlier promises,  does anyone think for half a second that Iran will actually follow through on anything they promised? The answer of course is no.

When Iran reneges on whatever deal is made, Obama will be gone from the White House playing golf three times a day and speaking to wide-eyed save the whales, trees and arctic audiences for $250,000 a pop. He will be leaving his successor to deal with his mess. Tomorrow Bibi is speaking to Obama. We would love to be a fly on the wall for that one, but it’s almost Passover and we’d never get back on time. We hope that Bibi makes his points and hightails outta dodge to do whatever he must to secure his country.

The german pilot that flew his plane and 150 people into a mountain at 700 km an hour left a trail behind him like little red riding hood in the forest. Everything points to him doing it. We hope such is the case, although isn’t it interesting how there are so many clues right away? It also opens up a huge can of worms in terms of mental health.

Basically pilots are on the honor system to report any health issues. Now we ask you, what would most people do? Say the truth and lose their job or lie and keep it. After all, a mental health issue is not something like a wart on your nose that everyone can see.

One thing we can say with certainty. This plane crash comes to you from the terrorists of 9/11 as was pointed out in an article last week. Up until then anyone could just knock on the cockpit door and friendly, smiling pilots would allow people to check out the front of the plane. Da world ain’t what it used to be. Dat’s for sure Blanche.

And now for some local news. Today in Montreal there was the mother-of-all marches against the Quebec government’s austerity plan. We are of two minds with this plan.

The first thing is that irks us is the bloated civil service in this province. You know we have more civil servants than California? In case you’re not understanding, California has a population of $38 million. We here in Quebec have a population of 8.18 million. We tried to find out how many civil servants there are in Quebec but zut alors, the number is not made public. Wouldn’t ya know it?

About being in debt up to your eyeballs –  who except the government can spend other people’s money like it was coming off a tree in their backyard? Well, up until this budget (and we fear beyond), such is the case. Imagine telling your friend that you’re dipping into his bank account because you don’t have enough money to go on vacation.

Here’s a memo that the civil servants didn’t get: ya can’t go on forever spending money you don’t have. There does come a day when ya gotta give it back. Oh, and one more thing. Alberta sends us about $7.5 billion annually in ‘transfer payments’. Now that the oil prices have tanked like the titanic, they are not going to be very happy parting with that money, especially going to Quebec with geniuses like PKP constantly shooting off his mouth that he wants to separate. This could get ugly and we are rooting for the government.

A shortened Blanche tonight as it is the night before Passover and things must get done before tomorrow night. The clock is ticking. We take this opportunity to wish all of our readers a happy, healthy and peaceful Passover. Truly Next Year in Jerusalem!

Good Shabbos and Happy Passover

The Mother of All Elephants

This past Saturday night, while walking home from shul in Williamsburg, a grandfather and his two grandsons were shot at with paintball guns. It is the second such incident in less than a week. According to reports, the police are investigating whether this is a hate crime. What do they think it is, a love crime? People love Jews so much that they are shooting paintballs at them from their cars.

While it may indeed be a few brainless teens having fun, there is no doubt that visibly Jewish men are perfect targets. They stand out like a red circle in the middle of a bulls eye.

It doesn’t help that Obama continues to ratchet up the feud between him and Netanyhau. His behavior is definitely emboldening people to go after Jews, whether consciously or unconsciously.

While Obama is running after Iran to sign some of kind of ‘peace’ business, which everyone knows will be worth less than the paper it will be written on, he missed today’s news conference with the head of the Iran militia. The commander of the Basij militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that “erasing Israel off the map” is “non-negotiable.” Lest you think these guards have been brought forth to cause problems, think again. The Basij is a religious volunteer force established in 1979 by the country’s revolutionary leaders, and has served as a moral police and to suppress dissent.

Ya know what Blanche? We think that Obama is more dangerous than Iran. At least we know what Iran is. Obama is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Seems that PKP genius running for the leadership of the Parti Quebecois is trying to re-brand himself. He got a new haircut and hired a make-over person. With his new haircut in tow, here’s what the genius said at yet another ‘leadership’ debate: “I want to tell you a little secret. I didn’t think public life could be so demanding. I see it now.” Quel surprise. When there is air between someone’s ears, no re-brand can help.

Hillary Clinton has finally weighed in on Obama’s irrational hatred of Netanyahu calling for a renewal of the “special” relationship between the US and the Jewish state.
She said that “we must ensure that Israel never becomes a partisan issue.” She may be a democrat and lover of whales, but she’s right on with this one. As Obama’s ex-erstwhile secretary of state, her voice carries some weight. Sure hope someone’s listening…if he’s not on the golf course.

And speaking of Hillary, seems she’s still in a heapa trouble over using her personal email server while secretary of state. Firstly, on at least one occasion she accidentally mingled personal and work matters. Dat’s a nono Blanche.

It has also come to light that she emailed her staff on an iPad as well as a BlackBerry while secretary of state, despite her explanation she exclusively used a personal e-mail address on a homebrew server so that she could carry a single device. Da fat lady did not sing on this one yet.

If this next piece of information comes to fruition, the entire Quebec government all need to see a shrink or be admitted to an asylum. It has been reported that the big Owe needs $220 million worth of repairs, not including a new roof that costs in the hundreds of millions of dollars. That mother of all elephants needs to be blown up and not one cent more of our money spent on it. If people want to protest in the street, this would be a good reason to do so.

We’ll talk…
