    I saw your comment about the villagers with torches got a lot of play in the financial press. Apparently the language of movies resonates with a lot of audiences where the language of accounting would fall on deaf ears.

    I was watching NBC nightly news when your face flashed up there. Hea, I think I know that lady, I said to myself. Then your name appeared. Very well said there. I have my torch fired up anytime you’re ready.

That was a bit of a surprise to see such gory movies playing on general access cable.
