One response to “the’fax: October 29, 2009

  1. Very nice show, a lot of variety. A bit for every one. I specially enjoyed Michelle Paul’s story. Doug and Jared’s argument was a very original way of presenting the piece. It kept me interested in the story because it was fun, even though I don’t like sports that much. Jessie Ross looks fantastic on camera. Vicenzo Ravina is great too, he brings some natural energy to his presentation. Looking forward to see next week’s presentation!
