      @Anonymous: Us ... We're ... ? Speak for yourself. Man is simply trying to show some support, maybe even Bobby will happen to read it and lift his spirits. What does your hatred for his opinion accomplish but proving your bitterness about human connection. "You got some issues Stan, I think you need some counseling to help your ass from bouncing off the walls when you get down some" Find that quote, sucka.
