Thanks for that inside look... I didn't think about this possibiity. Still, I loved Ross... even if he was making stuff up.
As for Steiner, I have come to appreciate him a bit more.
He has that style that seems to be very southern-like -- to me -- like he's rocking on a porch in Alabama, drinking a mojito, and watching the ballgame.
Not bad. But, not Ross, either.
