Officially, Turd is on siesta. Therefore, don't let MrsF know that he snuck away to record this brief podcast update. wink

This Week's JB with SFC

John and Steve had another interesting discussion on Tuesday. With the lack of debate in "the West" regarding the crisis in Ukraine, I urge you to give this a listen.
