I mean he's -- guys at this point the kind of money he's making -- fox and that's you know Roger -- loyalty to overall though that goes way back. I think if he does that and sticks to that he's going to be like Richard -- in that scene -- officer and settlement. I mean I think that morale boosted into his paycheck in the affected. Yeah it's gotta slow weekend thing to do with seventy considering that CNN and MSNBC on most nights are getting their asses kicked by that dwarfs on TLC right fifth at the there's there's not everybody.

It's in the -- kind of quickly -- thirteenth -- I think in the first feared it was like twelve episode then it was gonna head up facility and in the third season it was just eight episode the kind of back off real quick -- is a great -- I'd I agree with -- that was a terrific show to even though was fiction -- I and you just have. They showtime pulled the plug on it and I think that may be. It was because it was a hold over from another regime and they just didn't see enough people like you or me who who like to -- maybe too many people read the Brothers Bulger and realized there was fiction. There may be. I was hoping you would spur sales of people would want the real thing but the other way I had the Brothers Walter still available trade paperback and I don't in my home it's a favorite stocking -- every year it's internal police did did it -- big time yesterday on Amazon -- the blizzard you know how do you do you don't have to go you don't have to go leave your house just to just order a -- right on line and let your fingers do the clicking exactly and yesterday.
