MISTER “THE MAN”

Hello? ... Yes... Uh-huh... certainly I understand... Oh someone tried it on you once before... Look, Vladi, I'll tell you why I called... Hello... Hello... Can you hear me?... Say, could they turn the music down a little?... Oh, well, could they stop playing?... Oh, good, I thought we lost the connection there for a minute... yes, I hear you very clearly... Well, look...
(clears throat)

You know how we've always talked about the possibility of something going wrong? ... With the INTERNET... uh-huh... that's right... Well, it happened... Hello? Can you still hear me?...

    Oh great.

    Now we have the Great Firewall of China to see from the space station.

    That is all that I got from the article, since I am from the generation that waited for the TV to warm up to get a picture.

    I am amazed that Obama had the smarts to talk about this with anyone...or was he reading from his I-Pad teleprompter?
