While I enjoyed your commentary on the Diane Rehm show this morning, the real reason I'm thanking you is because while I was tuned in to hear you, I also heard about Sweeney Todd being performed at Catholic University.  I'm nervous about attending the show at such a school, but it still gives me the opportunity to take a really attractive woman on a date tonight.  For that, I owe you my props.
