    BTW, Steve Inskeep is much more attractive than David Hasselhoff. And certainly far more relevant. :)

  5. Holly Wells says:

    Pretty funny. Just one adjustment: Inskeep looks nothing like the Hoff. He does, however, look just like Matt Morrison from GLEE.

  6. Brad Linder says:

    Thanks Brad. You’re right. We got most of the images from the NPR site, but had to do some digging on others. We’ll remove it. Cheers, N
