    I don't think letting the current contract expire without renewal exactly counts as pulling ads.

    By the way thanks for the link. I posted it on my facebook page, asking others to do the same. Two so far said they would, of course they are of the few folks that patronize that place weekly with me for soup and salad, so I don't know how well that will work.. Friday's here we come.

    Thanks for the link, without it Monday I would have spent my money there. :razz:

    Yea but you have to admit their salad and breadsticks rock, especailly if you order a side of crumbly blue cheese. Yum, yum.

    I didnt find the jokes funny but hey i still watched and found the show after his apology hilarious, the way they introed it with him behind a cbs exec stating that they are apologizing in advance for jokes being told that night that might offend anyone and he is who he is and thats an idiot...CLASSIC! I watched last night and dont know if it was intended but he got another one in on that bitch Palin saying that with the gay pride rally week in nyc it will be great to see 300 guys dressed like sarah palin! :p
