  1. Actually, Marcus has 3 daddies:

    1. Bio dad Justin

    2. Adoptive father Walton

    3. Would-be adoptive father Eric.

    This is a crappy story because it trashes Marcus' relationship with his Walton family. Why would an adopted child who had a good relationship with his adoptive parents who raised him from infancy toss them them away for a new adoptive father he's known for 2 years? Ridiculous? Insulting? Yep!

  2. Hey guys just listened to the show and I loved it. First it was nice to hear Mala talking with you guys thats always great. I agreed with most of your points about everything and I think it's just great to hear you guys talk about the issues with soaps and everything. great interview with Jimmy depaiva too Damon it was awesome.
