   Scott, I have to agree with you there. Judging by the comments from many 
of those who called in or were in studio, I don't think Gary knows what to 
do next, but let's hope that he can adjust his body clock to sleep past 
3AM!! I

   One of the best lines of the day came from Dave Maynard, when Gary asked 
him for advice on what to do after he walks out the door to retirement, Dave 
replied: "Go out, get a palm tree and sit under it".
