We need to get Manton back. He's one of the best posters here.
This is one of the reasons I like you Fran, despite frequently disagreeing with you. Manton also frequently disagreed with you and was never shy about saying so. Yet you respect him and are actually advocating for his return. You're a good guy, Fran, with a thick skin, and you almost never get personal, despite the many personal attacks hurled your way. The forum would miss you, I suspect.
In spite of you being a mindless right-wing mouthpiece
