Martin: welcome back to the show ladies and gentlemen. This is Roland Martin working our way through the final hour and now engaging…cautiously with an entertainer with a lot on his mind…a lot of people in his mind, that is. are you folks there?
PBC: Yes, we’re all here.
Martin: But are you really all there? Ha ha. I hope you don’t mind that little pun.
