Thank God!!!! Whatever it takes to get Jim Jackson off my TV screen. Toni is great to look at but my God Jim really slows down the news!
I wonder if he will talk in his fake news voice as commissioner.

Regardless if I lille Jim Jackson or not I think he has been there for joplin at every turn and bump in the road and for that alone I think he deserves enough respect to keep your rude remarks to yourself
