    Can’t hold a good man down for long. There is more then one personality that makes the show so interesting. Those that chose not to LISTEN have exactly the same rights afforded to them that those that chose to LISTEN. Why must he continue to be scrutinized? I’m sure listening to how great of a father he is with less allotted time with performing his show plus the finances it takes to support his sons past time only a few percent could afford it. Even less would be a fatherly part of it the way he supports tyler. It must be hard supporting those who like you yet facing the hate everyday.
    Stick it up bubba. You always percerviered in the past. And will in the future. I’m sure Manson, dirty ned, 25, and jabber got ur back, as I’m sure Howard has. Ain’t heard a word there either.
