Bradley’s comment is:

Ah, David Carson. I almost forgot that I need to kick his ass for cancelling a lecture in St. Louis at the last minute a couple months ago. Typical of his behavior, I suppose. Gotta wonder about a profession that puts a guy like this on a pedestal so frequently.

Bradley, if David got an ass kicking everytime he cancelled . . . he might not be able to do anymore lectures.

Kinglsey, as always you seem to find a way to make me waste more time instead of working and look at other design blogs the world over. Ms. McCarthy's will be added to the list.
