Right. I like that title of your show. It's funny. Ted Nelms. Close enough right. He's minus Ator ego. Before you came out here we were discussing snooping. Are you a snooper or not? No. I don't support snooping. You don't? No. I heard a little bit. I think it's bad news. You've gotta trust each other otherwise what are you doing together. It's just going to open up suspicion.
