Its a little bit too aggressive. Maverick: Too aggressive, yeah I guess when I see something I go right after it.

I prefer they go to the mattresses like in Godfather.
Leave the gun, grab the canolies.
I won’t be watching the debate. The kenyans face is not allowed on my TV screen for more than the time it takes to change the channel. I’ll read the articles on Freerepublic at 2 or 3 am and find out in 5 seconds who won. Then I’ll watch snips on youtube etc. Best way to do it.
Think I will watch game 3 of the Tigers/Yankees pennant race. With the Yankees down by 2 should be a pretty good game.
