They usually open up with somebody, the news of the day, and then the second segment of first half hour is me, if this holds true. Sometimes they open with me, but usually it’s the second segment. Chris asks me for, essentially, a papal dispensation from you. It’s only a 12-minute segment, at max 15.

But I’ll remind you of this again before the program ends tomorrow.
