Macrovision -- they were talking about the announcement by the US Postal Service that they lost sixteen billion dollars last year they're trying to obviously cut that down that's a good year. And so they've decided in August that's the tentative time to stop home delivery of letters on Saturday. So if fuel if you don't don't mind that that's fine it's gonna save and two billion dollars you still get a package at home if you're supposed to. A you'll get everything at the post office box that won't change at all so I think that's that that's a decent a tradeoff are just trying to save a little bit of money. Now I you know I do a lot of things on line whatever. Is that some people might take that the view of older -- fashion the boast of his old. I think it's a good value four that letter you put the stamp on a letter and it's a good you. I get a lot of the stuff that I -- on line gets delivered -- post office so. What's the deal there. I'm asking if you think that you don't need it need it anymore what else don't we need. In America so far the nominee is sort things we don't need hard wired home phones. We don't need though it's the encyclopedia as we -- -- need multiple market multiples school districts overlapping many times. We don't need a phone book we don't need carbon paper we don't need -- we don't need pennies. We like to know what -- you don't think. We need or if you're if you're going to miss the Saturday delivery at all let's go to John and Clarence John you're on WB yen. Yes sandy I won't miss it at all because. When -- trial earlier real time -- critical -- Monday January. -- the point even as he sat right down and wrote a jacket as you -- you don't lose everything that's that's a very logical thing there's Jihad. Then it. It's a little bit -- -- you out. They they're consolidated -- be just the idea of throwing out there are -- -- you do know is. The superintendent of both cities being the one interred -- the other. Scored districts and they report -- Arum. I don't know it's a certain idea you know OK well we'll have you. Ever. Thought of being a stand -- media. Yeah I have I I've got to vote as well I wrote -- the -- did conference powerless for his roast I thought you know this would be fun this will be fun is lot of hard work it's and I have given it some thought but -- thank -- -- it thank -- Appreciate it. If it took me. Almost a month to right. Fifteen minutes but there -- killer fifteen minutes John Murphy sent -- A note and says it was the best. Rose performance he'd ever seen and John Murphy is bin to a few that felt good about that and I I felt good delivering it to because I knew oh. It was it was all me there was no fat and there it was -- me again video of it what I -- know. Is that it -- the tape and that to play on cable. I mean it was a rose and rose a good rose has to be you know. Pretty tough -- and mind wise. But I didn't know there are showing cable. And how effective was mine I have an interesting conversation -- Jim Kelly about. -- months. Why do know that France Burleson -- -- reactors -- dot com yeah it housed going back and forth on Twitter and he said that he was such a blast that night it was fun it was a great night at any west of your big -- no cobra virus.

Yeah I didn't and it went door and find frank unum is that Saturday home delivery or -- things we don't need anymore when he got to force that. Along like -- let this Saturday delivery but I do think it's something that I think might feel a controversial -- what I believe we're not gonna need very soon. And that's 150 dollar cable or satellite TV bill. I personally I dropped my cable in. Now I get all my entertainment on Netflix my the new TVs have been built in notes outsmart TV apps you can -- -- -- on your TV. I can go on on the Internet if you.

You know be at the water cooler talk about the episode that aired last night right you can you can get whatever you want pretty much on demand without paying for it. Well what I've found true is. Like for instance -- well different -- -- to compete like DirecTV is heavily and a sports. And you're gonna have to have you gonna have to give that to get the kind of sport you want there but there's a lot of things with -- all the channels that you never ever watch and you watch a handful of channels. About the way their package you can't just pick out that -- I understand what you just said frank about it being more efficient the way you -- you just suggested thank you.

I think what happened is bill puts something on your head when you go to sleep tonight downloading your boring. And in the morning you can just watch it through your own bibles what do you think. Does that sound -- whatever works concept. Is your every Wednesday. I'm sick and tired of -- channels to battle contract -- I mean down the unit providers in the that would -- -- of that Maria. But if you watch a lot of the stuff. That we said OK. I have 500 -- says it's a few years what are they gonna have 500 channels how they going to fill up. Content wise 500 channels because they -- up. AB CNBC. CBS and and the PBS OK a -- 500 channels. They've come up with a lot of -- ball programming. And you watch every one of them all you watch more than I do able putting twenty pounds of hamburger in their mouth in three minutes last -- you know worms on a stick now you'll watch. As though I watch food stuff we'd love to cooking channel and Food Network -- the women on the food. Some of them okay I like you know obviously the sports. A soldier about a program that we're merely watch -- I called -- front.
