    I appreciate your support, but it wasn't Toronto that decided to do
    the MuchUSA thing. It was MuchUSA, a separate company. Believe me,
    Toronto was not/is not happy about it.
    MuchUSA relented and agreed to carry my show, then backed away again
    after the e-mails stopped coming. They stopped coming because MUSA
    said they'd carry the show. Catch-22.
