Try "reading comprehension" concerning the intent of the author. You and Judy are equally challenged in this department and it drives your faux outrage machine here. Share will see it as support of herself (I am not sure what she thinks they are supporting as somewhere inside of her she must recognize the insensitivity of her "lame joke", doesn't she?) but she is missing the boat. She is just a handy tool for Curtis and Barry to attack you and now me.
