    Dear Roland,
    I picked up your show sometime during the last election season and continue to enjoy and respect the perspectives you and your guests bring to the ongoing conversation. Recently you have taken to doing “standing commentary” with guests, and for whatever reason, this strikes me as odd. Especially with the ladies I keep wanting to offer them a seat, and I wonder if it is just me and my Southern Hospitality leanings, or is there a reason? Otherwise, I love your show and bid you Godspeed.
