    Their wide range of productions include network television programs, Fortune 500 corporate projects and commercials. Their work has appeared on PBS, NBC, Discovery Channel, CNN and ESPN.

    •  Nice work (none)
      I think there are a whole lot of dry mouths somewhere.

      It is no accident that Liberty and Liberal are the same word.

    •  Egads! Cedwyn! (none)
      Will you grab a couple of Kossacks and go off in this direction?

      This is dynamite (or maybe a big fizz down the road, but who knows until we get there)?

      I think we're getting to the point where two or three people need to go off in their own research direction and we'll compile it all later.

      GREAT job!

        •  Did anyone else see this? (none)
          Okay, this will probably get lost in the sauce and it may be apropos of nothing, but I found it interesting. So Joe Gibbs has name recognition and credibility at the top. But elsewhere on the YFT trustees' list is:

          Oliver North (mildly interesting)... and among the corporate VPs and Presidents...

          Brit Hume - Managing Editor, Fox News

          Okay, it's a reach and I'm just dreaming. But that would be too delicious...

          For those who understand, no explanation is necessary. For those who don't, none will suffice.
