    I really like Wade, he’s become one of my favorite parts of BotL, does he respond or call in to any other shows? I would pay MONEY to hear him on conservative radio.

    Good day Jay: I wanted to post a question to see if any of the shows followers or you had any insight about the bar associations role. Where does the bar association play a role in policing lawyers when at least the minimal standards for an indictment are evident in two of these most recent cases, (and many others) and the prosecutor has disregarded or left out important facts?
