I thought you looked fine. Cool suit. It's summer your supposed to have at least one suit in linen like that. I still think GM oughta give you a new Avalanche.

GM gave me a gift back in 2005 - it was a payment book for the Grand Prix!   :laugh:

Holy Crap!  Fogo De Chao was like going to cooked meat heaven, oh you want more of this, oh you want more of that, go to our salad bar, its covered in meat too, just eat meat.  EAT EAT EAT!!!  Flip your little coaster over to green and there is just a line of people with skewers of meat who want to slice off a chunk for you, and at about $50 a head, it really isn't a bad deal, but I'm pretty sure I'd be 400 pounds if I ate their regularly.

YGMN was telling me about that place. I looked it up. It's a Brazilian steak house and it looks good if your into beef.

Nice interview...!  I agree on what you said about putting their spin on it.  We have the same thing happen with our industry.  The media puts their spin  on it and outright lies...

That SHOULD work as a direct link.

On a separate but related note, why when watching Chief did I suddenly have Liesure Suit Larry flashbacks?

Good job Chief :thumbsup:

Excellent job, Chief!

You were articulate and looked great in the suit.

As for the sound bites - I know how it is. My mom got interviewed last year for the LA Times. They talked for ten minutes to her about drug busts in her neighborhood. The only quote the put from her was, "I think they should legalize marijuana."

Also, one of my co-workers was intervened for the local news. He went over the whole elections process and ended up with, "we have three rows of six machines, which means we have eighteen machines."   w00t! He can count!

I'm suprised you didn't mention that you were planning on putting in a 5.3L and a midgate in the Grand Am.  :P

No Grand Am - YECK!  Grand Prix, and you can actually get a Grand Prix with a LS4 5.3L V8 under the hood right from General Motors!

Tried both links.  I get to the $100 club comment, then it jumps to the next video.   :E:

I saw that segment.  Man, did it go by fast.  It was over by the time I realized what I'd heard.  Probably distracted just having flipped over from GMA's gas story about higher prices for paying by credit card where they never bothered to mention that it's generally a violation of the merchant agreement to do that.

Then I went out and washed the Avalanche, before the little flecks of ash became permanent.

Good interview, Chief......you did good. :thumbsup:  I thought you looked "snazzy" in white.  Having previously lived in Houston for almost 40 years, I understand your suffering in the heat and humidity.  While you made the valid points that were not aired, it's just another example of NBC's agenda to use "sound bites" in support their news line.  They didn't want to hear about Tahoe Hybrids.....
