    ...absolutely nothing and no one is sacred on The RMR, and I can appreciate that. With a few glaring exceptions, his pokes at people and situations are in good taste, and if nothing else, give food for thought. I did think "Talking to Americans" (which is quite separate from RMR) was a bit over the top and occasionally insulting to those in the U.S., who, lets face it, generally neither know nor care what happens in Canada.

    That fact can be entertaining when addressed properly, but I don't appreciate put downs of others unless they are equally balanced with exploitation of our own many and varied foibles. Generally RMR does just that, and makes us laugh at ourselves as well as others. And almost more importantly, he gives weekly profile to Canadian people, places and events that are uniquely "us" and enhances national pride just that little bit in the doing of it.

    Net result?: I enjoy RMR, and I am a bit more proud of "us". :o}
