Really I don't know why you guys will always hide your face and say shits. See it was just as it came, you don't have to drag Linda into it. Mind you, your year earning is her weekly earning. Always remember that before you say anything( let's leave trump now). Well I guess you know that already the reason you choose you be anonymous.
