Right. And Ray has spent a lot of time and effort getting himself to that
level in the American media scene.

I wouldn't trade places with him, that's for sure -- I'd much rather be
creating the technology, than weighing my every word carefully, trying
desperately neither to mangle the ideas nor to offend the masses.

It's a very tough job he has taken on, and though he's not doing perfectly,
he's doing way better than anyone else at it.
