  1. Robert Brown says:

    good show mike was a really good new guest

  2. Barren says:

    I think Abel is the best trainer in boxing. He is also cool to listen to.

    that is not easy because if you speak up or not agreed with other kids then you are not cool! I had taken all the steps necessary to get the school attention but all they said is ” we do the best we can to control it” and this is a â€caitholœc school”. Parents and Kids need to understand that the damage of bullying can affect in a child’s life. May GOD rest her soul.

  4. “Dallas,” the thought in my mind was just what you said–”the Chafer/Walvoord/Ryrie version of DTS.” As you know, I was a student of Raymond Saxe, who himself was a student under Chafer and Walvoord in the 1940s and 1950s.Thanks for your “footnotes.” It is helpful to note “silence and mixed testimony” versus “clear and explicit denial.”

  6. (when I say we all need to work to be a good person, is the perception we have .. that we should work to be a better person … but we don’t.   Working can be applied on so many levels and to be a good / better person means (to me) to be in peace with who we are.)
