An interesting message on my answering machine

A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Debbie, if you're referring to my friend McKenzie and he actually posted VPs at the half then I'm going to have to have a chat with him. He's one of the smartest guys I know so maybe he had a good reason for it that I'm ...
