      Just got back here one last time glad I caught you. Thanks Jim for the heads up on the 1932 Glass-Seagall act. I think they played with it too much. I do not think if people go to read it that Gingrich has even a chance.The week may have gotten a little harsher for Gingrich. I hope we will have some better choices for the next election. Thanks again for your insight, good night.
