#1: Topic: Baxter Black
I was so disappointed last week when Baxter was not on the program. He was so funny today - reminded me of the many times I have benn in that same situation here with goats and cows. Then you said the worse thing I have ever heard you say -- "Baxter Black will be back in 2 weeks". My husband and I both enjoy him very much and look forward to hearing him. If people don't like to hear him maybe they should leave the room at that time to get another cup of coffee, go to the restroom or just chill!
None of the farmers around here are so anal as to object to having him on the program. He is a good stress reliever after seeing the cost of corn and wheat that we need in order to maintain our cattle and goats. We live on my husbands family farm and he has been working the farm since he was able to walk to the barn. There is no one that is more FARMER than him!

MSNBC finally had the courage to fire Keith Olberman. When are you going to "man up" and fire the all pathetic Baxter Black?
p.s. You did finally eliminate the useless horse training bit from your show.
