    Most enjoyable! I must tell you, Dr. Fleming, that I’ve convinced my soon to be 84 year young father to listen to your podcasts, and he is delighted; if he did Facebook (which he despises and therefore does not) you would be on a very short list of likes!

    As for “democracy,” I always like to remind folks that the popular vote freed the murderer Barrabas and clamored for the death of the Lord of history.
