I remember looking at the clientele in the waiting room thinking how when the waves of post-war casualties from our then- (and now-) current conflict starting hitting the VA system how much it would be overrun and over-burdened.

The hosts were light-hearted, humorous and at times sophomoric – right up my alley. But all things change with time, and now more often than not A&G is more like Fox News lite with the constant haranguing and criticizing of Barrack Obama, and when that happens I just flip the channel.
